Science Public Lecture AI and Chemistry: A Greener Future

AI and Chemistry: A Greener Future

Thursday 20th June, Physics Building, University Campus, University of Nottingham

Dr Joe Heeley, Research Fellow, Chemistry 

Artificial Intelligence is often portrayed as a scary algorithm that will one day destroy the world; but what about the ways in which it can save it? As the consequences of global warming become our bitter reality, we must learn to lessen our impact upon the environment by developing greener and more sustainable processes. This is particularly difficult in the chemical industry, as high energy demands and the production of toxic waste make day-to-day chemistry inherently polluting.

Join us to learn about how we can use AI to address these problems and how we can encourage chemists to use our tools to make their chemistry greener!

This lecture is part of our monthly science public lecture series. These events showcase research from scientists at the University of Nottingham and are free and open to all!
