The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is holding the “Data Science and AI Regulatory Applications Workshop,” tomorrow to discuss the agency’s activities for the safe and secure use of artificial intelligence in NRC-regulated activities.

What it’s about: The workshop, hosted by the NRC’s Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research, will focus on various AI characteristics impacting regulatory considerations. It will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (EDT) at NRC headquarters in Rockville, Md. Those unable to attend in person can participate virtually on Microsoft Teams. All participants are requested to register online.

The AI workshops support implementation of the NRC Artificial Intelligence Strategic Plan: Fiscal Years 2023–2027.
