Artificial Intelligence in European Science


“The artificial intelligence has the potential to revolutionize scientific discovery, accelerate the progress of scientific research, drive innovations and improve researcher productivity. The EU should take advantage of the opportunities this brings, and in a timely manner. But it should also address the challenges and risks associated with this rapidly developing technology." This is stated in the scientific opinion prepared by the Group of Chief Scientific Advisers to the European Commission. The opinion was prepared at the request of the EC. It states that the EU should prioritize AI-based research in areas where large volumes of hard-to-interpret data are available, such as personalized healthcare, social cohesion and green and digital transitions. It is important to support new research of the most ecological algorithms and infrastructure to create artificial intelligence to support the management of the impact of technology on the environment, the scientists added.

AI-powered scientific research requires massive amounts of data. This data must be of high quality, collected responsibly and well curated, with fair access for European researchers and innovators. The EU should continue to work with the research community to ensure that data standards, guidelines and best practices can develop as technology develops.

The availability of both human talent and computing power determines which parts of the world can benefit most of the artificial intelligence and which are left behind. Currently, most infrastructure of this type belongs to a small number of companies, mostly in the USA and China, and even public research laboratories depend on them for computing power. This makes it difficult to obtain transparent, reproducible scientific results, which are essential for sustainable science in an open society.

The scientists also indicate that the creation of a new European Institute for Artificial Intelligence in Science will provide high-performance computing power, sustainable cloud infrastructure and training programs for scientists. Along with these services, the European Council on Artificial Intelligence in Science should provide special funding for researchers in all disciplines to explore and adopt artificial intelligence in their field. It is also important to ensure that artificial intelligence in scientific research is in line with the EU's core values.

Dicon Group participates in the process of creation and development of artificial intelligence for its clients. The project is aimed at environmental protection.
