LNC Season 3. Materials Discovery with AI with Andy Cooper

The Late Night Conference with Wilhelm Huck is back again with its exciting new Season 3. Just like last season, we are bringing it to you LIVE from Radboud University Nijmegen with a studio audience hosted by Prof. Wilhelm Huck. Of course, we will still follow our tradition of live streaming so that you can enjoy these fascinating lectures from your home, in the lab or on the bus! In this new season, we will dive deep with the exciting topic of Chemistry and AI. From complex learning to using AI for drug discovery, we have a range of topics covered with our speaker lineup!

The sixth – and the last – episode of Late Night Conference with Wilhelm Huck is on Tuesday 11th July, 20h00 CET!

This episode will be streamed live on our YouTube channel Late Night Conference with WH (don’t forget to subscribe & watch our previous exciting episodes!) from Giga-Bite at Huygensgebouw in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, where we are excited to have you in our audience!!

Please note – no ticket is needed if you only want to watch the stream on YouTube! 

What does a robot chemist look like? Well… like a robot. In our last episode of the season, we are joined by Andy Cooper, Professor of the University of Liverpool, to discuss how  building intelligent robots can lead to materials discovery! Professor Cooper’s team has brought to life every chemist’s dream: a tireless, precise, and resilient lab partner!

The lab’s research focuses on synthesising materials with novel functions, and on developing methods for controlling material structure at the atomic level. By utilising the mobile robot chemist to carry out experiments, the discovery of materials can be greatly accelerated. Don’t worry though, the robot’s purpose is to augment scientist’s ability to do research, not to replace them (yet). The third season will conclude on July 11th. Don’t miss it!

To prepare, you can binge watch Season 1 and 2 on our YouTube channel. You may also enjoy this highlight reel from our last seasons. You can follow us on Twitter and Instagram, as well as subscribe to our mailing list for the latest updates!
