What are citizen needs, concerns and wishes for the digitalization of brain science? What would they like researchers to know about working with citizen data? What ethical and social needs should brain researchers keep in mind when developing neurotechnologies? Lise Bitsch presented her work leading public engagement initiatives in the Human Brain Project to engage diverse stakeholders to identify priorities, concerns, and potential benefits of emerging digital technologies. These are relevant both for scientific projects and for governance of AI in society.

Forskningen må være åpen, tilgjengelig og ansvarlig. Populærvitenskapelig formidling er et viktig bidrag for å involvere folket i forskningen.

Kom og hør om grensesprengende forskning fra Digitalt liv Norge. Denne kvelden gir vi ordet til yngre forskere som bruker bioteknologi til å finne løsninger på vår tids store samfunnsutfordringer.

The World Health Organization (WHO) states that antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats to global health, food security, and development today. A growing number of infections are becoming harder to treat as the antibiotics used to treat them become less effective. In addition to reducing the overuse of antibiotics, we need to discover and bring new antibiotics to market. This is a formidable challenge, but perhaps part of the solution can be found in the ocean?

The increased use of digitalization technologies in life science changes the way life science research is done. State of the art experimental techniques now routinely produce very large datasets of which the interpretation is unclear. This does not only increase our ability to interrogate the natural world, but also affects the research questions. This changes life-science research, but also our view of what a living system is. The practical consequences of this are still unclear.

As a relatively young discipline, bioinformatics has had an exceptional growth in technology and public interest. But what is bioinformatics? How is it used in novel research and commercial products? And what possibilites are seen in the future?

Innovasjon er å skape verdier på nye måter, men det er noen utfordringer i dagens system som kan gjøre det vanskelig å få til mer innovasjon fra bioteknologiforsking på en ansvarlig måte. Hvorfor er det slik og hva kan vi gjøre med det? Senter for digitalt liv Norge har nå funnet noen svar og utarbeidet en rapport. Nå inviterer vi til diskusjon på Arendalsuka sammen med paneldeltakere som har lang erfaring med forskningsinnovasjon for å se nærmere på hva rapporten sier.
