Science Today on Man and Machine

How are smart machines changing us and our future? Today, we use machines and artificial intelligence on a daily basis, often without realising it. Algorithms and computer programmes are the base of all digital communication. In this eighth edition of Science Today, we enter the Reaktorhallen at KTH and explore the theme of Man and Machine. Reaktorhallen is the original site of Sweden’s first nuclear reactor, the research reactor R1. Today it is used as a creative meeting place.

Time: Fri 2024-04-26 18.00 - 19.00

Location: KTH Reaktorhallen, Drottning Kristinas väg 51, Stockholm

Language: English

The way humans communicate is very different from the language
machines and computers understand. While we gesture and read each other’s
emotions, computers have traditionally only been able to understand code and
numbers. But today’s developments in AI mean that we can communicate with
machines in a similar way to how we talk to the people around us. How does
collaborating with AI in everyday life affect us? Will we see machines and AI as
an integral part of ourselves rather than just tools? Can smart machines help us
get results that we would not have been able to achieve on our own?

Science Today takes the temperature of science in 2024 and invites you to an
after-work where researchers from KTH, Karolinska Institute (KI) and Stockholm University (SU) get the chance to present their work on stage and interact with the audience. We investigate the world of science and technology and create an opportunity for doctoral students, researchers, and other enthusiasts interested in scientific research to meet and exchange ideas.

During this evening, we explore the topic from different angles and learn about
currect research in this field. The evening is in English and is curated by Olof
Somell from the Nobel Prize Museum.
