AI in Particle Physics

Dr. Peter Galler (Research Associate, University of Glasgow)
Peter Galler is a vibrant particle physicist at Glasgow University. In
his research, Peter uses artificial intelligence to write new tales
about the fundamental constituents of nature.
Artificial intelligence (AI) starts to become increasingly important in
our daily lives. No wonder that AI can be very beneficial for the
scientific community as well. Particle physics is one example. We face
many open questions despite the fact that the Standard Model of particle
physics describes experiments so accurately. Could AI help us understand
physics beyond the Standard Model?

What did the Neuroscientists Ever Do for Us?!

Dr. Josie Fullerton (Postdoctoral Research Associate)
Dr Josie Fullerton is a Neuroscientist at the University of Glasgow, where she researches the influence of microRNA in stroke in Dr Lorraine Work’s lab. For the launch of Pint of Science 2019, Josie will discuss the Life of Brain – focussing on previous thoughts about brain function, how neuroscientists got to where we are today and where the field is still developing. There will also be a few quiz questions thrown in to look at some common misconceptions about neuroscience!
