This year the AI3SD Network+ (Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Intelligence for Automated Investigations for Scientific Discovery) will be running a workshop at the WebSci20 Conference in Southampton, UK. Artificial and Augmented Intelligence systems have the potential to make a real difference in the scientific discovery domain however this brings a new wealth of ethical and societal implications to consider with regards to this research (e.g. human enhancement, algorithmic biases, risk of detriment). This workshop looks to explore the ethical and societal issues centered around using intelligent technologies (Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Intelligence, Machine Learning, and in general Semantic Web Knowledge Technologies) to further scientific discovery, with a strong consideration of data ethics and algorithmic accountability. Advances in technology and software are rarely inherently bad in themselves, however that unfortunately does not preclude them from being subverted to ill intent by others; furthermore, as demonstrated by the examples above, even an unintentional lack of care towards ethical codes and algorithmic accountability can lead to societal and ethical implications of scientific discovery. It is our responsibility as researchers to consider these issues in our research; are we conducting studies ethically? What ethical codes can we put in place for scientific discovery research to mitigate against ethical and societal issues. These are really important issues, and they require an interdisciplinary focus between scientists, social scientists and technical experts in order to be comprehensively addressed.

We are the AI3SD Network+ (Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Intelligence for Automated Investigations for Scientific Discovery). The network+ is funded by EPSRC and hosted by the University of Southampton and aims to bring together researchers looking to show how cutting edge artificial and augmented intelligence technologies can be used to push the boundaries of scientific discovery. We launched in December 2018, and this conference marks the end of our first year. This is a two day event with a mixture of keynote talks from experts in the different areas of AI for Scientific Discovery, and discussions around different research areas. There will be dedicated time for networking and we will be implementing a smart badge system whereby attendees can mark their badges according to whether they are looking for a collaborator, employment, job candidates, PhD students etc. We will report on the activities of AI3SD over the last year, including the workhops and hackathons we have run and attended, and there will be an opportunity to hear from the projects we funded in AI3SD-FundingCall1. On the evening of the 18th there will be drinks and networking in the Winchester Science Centre followed by a pre dinner talk by famous Science Communicator Steve Mould! This will be followed by a formal conference dinner at the Holiday Inn.

Website Link: http://generic.wordpress.soton.ac.uk/dial-a-molecule/ai_ml_chem_disc/ Description This is a joint networks event between AI3SD, Dial-a-Molecule, Directed Assembly Network and the University of Leeds, and it will be held at Weetwood Hall in Leeds on 18-19th July 2019. This residential event aims to bring together stakeholders with different backgrounds, e.g.academic/industry, researchers/data owners, and chemists/engineers/computer scientists, to discuss applications of AI and Machine Learning in Chemical Discovery and Development. A series of structured discussion sessions over the two days will be carried out to form a general consensus on some key objectives and milestones to deliver the promised impacts of these important tools within the remit of the three networks. The discussions are also expected to lead to new and unusual collaborative project proposals which may address the more immediate objectives. This event is free to attend and registration will include all refreshments, lunches on both days, a networking dinner on the 18th and, if required, one nights’ accommodation at Weetwood Hall. Numbers are strictly limited. We expect demand to be high and we want to make sure we have a good balance of interests amongst our attendees. Therefore we ask all those interested to submit a short application on the Leeds AI_ML event application form by the closing date of 17th May. Applications will be assessed and applicants will be notified of the outcome within 4 weeks of submission.
