Nobel laureate Michael Levitt will address the first major Shanghai Science Forum on Tuesday.

Michael Levitt, the 2013 Nobel Prize Winner in Chemistry, will open the Shanghai Major Science Forum on Tuesday with a speech on “Artificial Intelligence of Science”.

The forum is a new initiative established by a number of institutions, including the Shanghai Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, Fudan University, and the Shanghai Committee on Science and Technology.

It aims to support the city’s attempts to solidify its position as a global center for scientific and technological innovation, as well as become a source of modern scientific discoveries, technological progress, industrial trends and development ideas.

The Academic Board of the Program will select 100 nominees from among the recipients of international scientific prizes such as the Nobel Prize, the Turing Prize, the Fields Medal, the Wolf Prize, and the Lasker Prize. It will be held six times a year, with a keynote speaker discussing the latest in the world of science and technology.

Levitt will discuss artificial intelligence and innovation in biomedicine, as well as share the latest discoveries in the latest in computational biological research with other speakers.

“AI technology has inspired the development of new tools, methods and concepts, providing strong impetus for the development of other disciplines ranging from mathematics and physics to chemistry, materials science, life sciences and medical sciences,” said Ma Yugang, president. Associate of Fudan University and member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

“Artificial intelligence-assisted research is becoming a trend for interdisciplinary studies and integrated innovation, particularly in biomedicine. Computational biology is becoming increasingly important in research areas such as protein-genomic analysis and comparative genome analysis.”

He said the three speakers will discuss how basic AI technologies can advance basic research and support important scientific advances.

Levitt, a South African-born biophysicist, Fellow of the Royal Society and Professor of Structural Biology at Stanford University in the US. He, Martin Karplus and Ari Warsel shared the 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for “the development of multiscale models of complex chemical systems.”

Levitt joined Fudan University in 2018, where he founded a multi-scale research institute for complex systems.

According to him, Levitt will show how computational biology has evolved from a marginal field to a leading discipline, and will highlight scientific development as well as the relationship between “useless” basic sciences and “useful” applied sciences.

Co-speaker Jianpeng Ma, permanent professor at Baylor College of Medicine and Rice University, is a pioneer in biophysics and a leading expert in developing computational methods that have greatly expanded the ability to simulate, model and refine flexible biomolecular systems. His achievements were recognized in 2004 with the Norman Hackerman Prize for Chemical Research from the Welch Foundation.

He joined Fodan with Levitt in 2018 and is now the Director of MRICS.

It will discuss what progress the institute has made as well as the role artificial intelligence plays in creating new medicines.

Yuan Chi, director of the Institute of Artificial Intelligence Innovation and Industrial Research at Fudan University, former vice president of Alibaba, chief scientist for Ant AI, and head of AI at Ant Financial Services Group, is the other speaker.

Qi joined Fudan last year and will highlight how artificial intelligence is being used to boost economic growth in sectors such as pharmaceutical development, life sciences, meteorology and energy.

The forum will be held at Xianghui Hall on the Handan Road Campus of Fudan University and will be broadcast online. Those interested can participate in the event by scanning the QR codes below.
