This article shows how COVID19 triggered changes in research culture and how science and technology helped to improve our quality of life.
During the global shutdown, many scientists had to face working in confinement – not only away from the lab and its facilities, but also away from their research teams and colleagues. But what if you were married to your partner? Scientists Viviana and Luigi found themselves flourishing in this new type of scientific environment – combining their expertise from different fields to devise a new methodology that has spurred into an international partnership.

Artificial intelligence is a rapidly growing field of science and technology, yet the potential it holds for enhancing some of the world’s most powerful experimental tools such as neutron and x-ray probes is yet to be fully explored. Applying machine learning methods to processes within these international experimental facilities could help to overcome some of the biggest challenges faced by scientists today. This includes automating some of the handling, processing, and linking together of large datasets. At Institut Laue-Langevin, exploratory projects are already underway to ensure scattering science also reaps the benefits of artificial intelligence research.
