This event is the second of four events in our 'Failed it to Nailed it - Getting Data Sharing Right' series. This event aims to provide best practice advice on different types of data standards, including metadata, open data and linked data. There will be three talks by experts in these areas, followed by a discussion panel on data standards.

Symbolic AI, sometimes referred to as Good Old-fashioned AI, has its roots in the earliest days of the AI project. It seeks to represent reasoning using explicit data structures often drawn from logic. Symbolic AI systems have the advantage of being comparatively easy to understand and analyse and potentially allow compact forms of representation and communication. Their disadvantages tend to include inflexibility, a high knowledge engineering cost, and difficulty handling non-symbolic, statistical and analogue processes such as vision and motion. This talk will cover a brief history of the field and current topics within it as well as looking at proposals for combining symbolic and non-symbolic reasoning.

This is a joint meeting between the Dial-a-Molecule, Directed Assembly and AI3SD (Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Intelligence for Automated Investigations for Scientific Discovery) Networks. The meeting will examine the state of the art and future opportunities in the use of Artificial Intelligence to predict the outcome of unknown chemical reactions, and consequently design optimum synthetic routes to desired molecules. A wide variety of AI approaches will be illustrated including expert systems, statistical methods, mechanism based and Machine Learning. The meeting will also consider: Data sourcing, sharing, and quality. Automated experimentation to generate reaction knowledge. Theoretical calculations to enrich or replace experimental data. The meeting will include talks to introduce the breadth of the area to all participants. Discussion sessions and opportunities to develop collaborations will be a key aspect of the meeting.

01/05/2019 – AI3SD Semantics and Knowledge Learning for Chemical Design Workshop – Solent Conference Centre, Southampton

Designing chemicals, discovering new drugs, discovering materials and indeed all aspects of scientific discovery are all tasks that are highly data driven, and semantic web technologies are key to enabling researchers to deal with high levels of data in a useful and meaningful way. Semantic technologies facilitate representing data in a formal, structured, and interoperable way, and enable data to be reasoned over to infer potential relationships. In this workshop we seek to explore the ways in which semantic web technologies can be used to drive predictions in chemical design, including using Machine Learning and other AI techniques to exploit semantic links in knowledge graphs and linked datasets. There will be several keynote talks, an expert panel chaired by Professor Jeremy Frey, and a chance for breakout discussions. Lunch will be provided and the day will end with networking drinks.
