CEST group members Jari Järvi, Lauri Himanen, Milica Todorović and Patrick Rinke participated in the Aalto Junior outreach and scientific education program at Helsinki Central Library Oodi this week. They designed an interactive exhibit that demonstrates how artificial intelligence (AI) can speed up the search for molecular compounds and their structure. Such compounds are important in medical, pharmaceutical and technological research and applications. In the exhibit, school children can create their own 3D models of molecules and compete with the AI in finding the best structural arrangement of the molecule. The exhibit was previously on display in the AI in Arts exhibition in Dipoli, Otaniemi, organized by Aalto Digi Platform in 2019.

The exhibit features the BOSS method and software package that was developed by the CEST group. More information can be found in the following publication
