Role Description

Artificial Intelligence (AI) in physics is most commonly used to solve and simplify complex problems, making them easier to understand by scientists. Working in this role requires knowledge of programming languages, as you will be asked to create and develop complex AI models, simulations, and data-processing programmes for analysis of physical theories and experimental data.


In most recent years, the usage of artificial intelligence and machine learning has vastly helped to solve many physical problems and deepened our understanding of complex ideas such as forces in the Universe, climate modelling and properties of fundamental particles.
