Cristiano Fanelli - MIT/Jlab, Title of Talk: AI opportunities at JLab and EIC

AI is all around us and if you searched on google this abstract you maybe unintentionally used it.

With no surprise, AI is also entering in the field of particle and nuclear physics, where from the AI perspective, experimental and theoretical challenges often represent new opportunities.

In this talk I will give an overview of different activities at Jefferson Lab where AI can play a role to advance research. Jefferson Lab is a world-leading facility endowed with a continuous polarized beam designed to explore nuclear and hadron physics. It is currently taking data and has a wide approved program for the next years.

AI will also be used in the future large scale intensity frontier experiments like the recently approved Electron Ion Collider, that will be built at Brookhaven National Laboratory in the next ten years in partnership with JLab. The EIC R&D program will likely be one of the first characterized by AI in the detector-design phase. 

For students considering a career in nuclear physics and interested in AI, this could be a timely decision...
