Webinar to look at science automation, artificial intelligence and robotics
On July 26, at 2 pm, on FGV’s YouTube channel, FGV CPDOC will hold a webinar called “Science Automation: An Anthropological Vision.” The meeting will feature Vlad Schüler Costa, who has a doctorate in social anthropology from the University of Manchester, United Kingdom. Based mainly on an empirical case – the “Robot Scientist Project” – the speaker will discuss what science automation means in practice, the promises that lie behind projects in this area, resulting social and political issues, and whom these technologies may benefit.
In laboratories across the world, scientists are conducting research in the emerging field of science automation, using artificial intelligence and robotics techniques. This research is aimed at developing equipment and instruments to automate the scientific process itself – both manual and mental aspects. More than just tools that execute arduous or tedious tasks, many of these technologies are (or aspire to be) capable of sophisticated analyses, reading and interpreting scientific papers and even proposing new ideas or making scientific discoveries.
