Data Week 2022: Application of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence in the Nuclear Industry Workshop

June 17, 2022 -1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Whilst many in the industry and academia are doing data and AI work in nuclear, there is a lack of community, momentum and coherence about how the two areas can collaborate effectively to meet industry needs.

Building on discussions in Data Week 2021, this workshop will help form an industry-wide response about the benefits of developing AI technologies to reduce costs and construction time of nuclear technologies.

Workshop aims

  1. Build a community of Al and Nuclear industry and academia so we can state our position and requirements to decision-makers and funders (BEIS/EPSRC)
  2. Initiate discussions between people with questions and people with answers so we can facilitate writing proposals in this area. 

A diverse range of stakeholders are invited to input into this workshop, to ensure that digital technologies can be adopted into practice: vital if the UK is to achieve its Net Zero targets with a new generation of nuclear power plants.


Workshop Chair:

Professor Nawal Prinja - Technology Director, Jacobs

Workshop Co-Chair:

Professor David Knowles - CEO, The Henry Royce Institute


  1. Professor Paul Wilcox - Alan Turing Institute Fellow, University of Bristol
  2. Amandine Marrel - Research Scientist in AI, machine learning, metamodelling and nuclear, CEA (French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission)
  3. David Smeatham - Head of Innovation, Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR)
  4. Michael Martin - Associate Fellow, Rolls Royce
