U of T Engineering alumni, join us for this monthly series.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is now a part of the standard physical scientist’s tool kit, and it is regularly used to discover exciting new materials and processes. But AI is famously fickle, susceptible to data set bias and imbalance, subject to information leakage during training, and reliant on humans to evaluate its performance.
Professor Jason Hattrick-Simpers (MSE) discusses best practices for the implementation of AI techniques in the field of materials science, the challenges and successes of his research, and why he believes that robots can help us learn to better trust AI.

The Future of Vaccine Production: Giving Canadian Biomanufacturing a Shot in the Arm
The COVID-19 pandemic exposed gaps in Canada’s preparedness to address great challenges in the biomanufacturing space, including domestic production of vaccines. Disruptors & Dilemmas asks a panel of multi-disciplinary experts to provide their insights on Canada’s response to COVID-19, and how the fields of chemistry, engineering, and pharmacy are equipped to address future global crises. Through exciting initiatives at the University of Toronto and beyond, our alumni and faculty hold the keys to unlocking the power of Canadian biomanufacturing to ensure that we are a world leader for the next great challenge.
This free virtual speaker panel will be moderated by Claire Kennedy, Co-Chair of the Defy Gravity Campaign and Former Chair of University of Toronto’s Governing Council. Guests will be invited to engage in Q&A with the panelists following the discussion.
