The videos of the first edition of Sparks! are now available to watch

The theme of the first edition was Future Intelligence. The subject is particularly relevant to CERN because the flow, analysis and interpretation of vast amounts of information is a core strength of the Organization, in particular when searching for tiny signals in vast data sets, while avoiding bias and being open to novel technologies. As the particle physics challenge intensifies, CERN is set to be at the forefront of bringing together big data and artificial intelligence.

The Sparks! public event consisted of a series of short talks and debates about the current and future trends that will define the field of AI and how it will impact our society as we know it. The talks were given by AI experts taking part in our Sparks! Forum.

Unfortunately, we were not able to invite a live audience to the public event this year due to the ongoing public health situation. You can now watch the full event webcast here.
