About Registration Speakers Accommodations FAQ Past Workshops


The Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Fundamental Interactions (IAIFI) is enabling physics discoveries and advancing foundational AI through the development of novel AI approaches that incorporate first principles, best practices, and domain knowledge from fundamental physics. The goal of the Workshop is to serve as a meeting place to facilitate advances and connections across this growing interdisciplinary field.
