We experience the benefits of classical computing every day. However, there are challenges that today’s systems will never be able to solve. For problems above a certain size and complexity, we don’t have enough computational power on Earth to tackle them. To stand a chance at solving some of these problems, we need a new kind of computing. Quantum computers could spur the development of new breakthroughs in science: Medications to save lives, machine learning methods to diagnose illnesses sooner, materials to make more efficient devices and structures, financial strategies to live well in retirement, and algorithms to quickly direct resources such as ambulances. IBM Q is the world's most advanced quantum computing initiative, focused on propelling the science and pioneering commercial applications for quantum advantage. An industry first initiative to build universal quantum computers for business, engineering and science. This effort includes advancing the entire quantum computing technology stack and exploring applications to make quantum broadly usable and accessible.

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.
