On October 25, there was buzz and excitement in the MaRS Discovery District Auditorium as audience members flooded in to watch the sold-out 2023 Gairdner Science Week International Symposium "The Future of AI in Science and Medicine."

The 2023 symposium explored the impact Artificial Intelligence (AI) has had, and will continue to have, on science and health equity, and possible issues it poses. Inspired by the award-winning research of 2023 Canada Gairdner International Award laureates Drs. Demis Hassabis and John Jumper, Gairdner convened top authorities in AI present on topics such as building a foundation model for single-cell omics using generative AI, how reinforcement learning can help tackle crucial problems in healthcare, using AI to accelerate scientific discovery and more.
