Artificial intelligence already plays a big role in our everyday lives, whether it's in our smartphones, when we apply for a loan or click around on YouTube. But it could have a much greater impact on our lives - at least indirectly: by accelerating the progress of other sciences. There are many examples of this, for example in materials science or mathematics.

Now Deepmind introduces its latest project, which does just that: artificial intelligence for nuclear fusion. AI is expected to help develop new reactor concepts by optimizing and controlling the various control components. In this way, two technologies that have been considered the technology of the future for decades could help each other deliver on their promises for the benefit of humanity.
