The NYU Abu Dhabi Institute Hosts Insightful Talks and Conferences in January

By Emirates247

The NYU Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) Institute launches its 2023 in-person public program with a series of inspiring talks, workshops and conferences throughout the month of January.

The lineup kicks off with a talk titled Uncovering the Underlying Structure of the Universe in conjunction with Abu Dhabi Meeting on Theoretical Physics, a conference co-hosted by The Institute and the UAE Space Agency. Academics from key institutions will discuss how physicists have reached our current understanding of the universe, all the way from the idea that everything is composed of tiny vibrating strings, to how black holes defy space and time to preserve information, and to the profound reasons for why the universe around us is incredibly huge.

The second talk for the month of January, titled Black Hole Survival Guide, is organized in collaboration with NYU Abu Dhabi’s Center for Astro, Particle and Planetary Physics. Astrophysicist and author Janna Levin will discuss her latest book, Black Hole Survival Guide, a wholly accessible, fascinating guide to black holes. Levin will explain the ways in which black holes, the most intriguing inhabitants of the universe, have changed our most basic understanding of the galaxy, the universe, the whole expanse of reality that we inhabit.

The Institute will also be hosting workshops and conferences during January with the first workshop titled, NYU AI in Healthcare Research and Ideation, where NYU professors will be highlighting the challenges and new research directions of AI in healthcare while seeking to create collaborative opportunities within Abu Dhabi for the global research community.

Furthermore, NYUAD Associate Professors of Philosophy Sarah Paul and Matthew Silverstein will run a three-day workshop titled Normativity and Reasoning IX. The program for the month of January will conclude with a conference organized by the Special Olympics Global Center for Inclusion in Education in collaboration with the Center’s Research Collaborative, Special Olympics International Regional Staff, and Special Olympics Program, where experts will discuss a Global Unified Education System.
