Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences to utilize AI in choosing Nobel Prize winners for physics

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has said that it will utilize Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help choose the 2024 Noble Prize winners for physics.

According to the academy, this decision comes to avoid biases that are inherent in selection processes involving human judges.

“There are currently 224 Nobel laureates, but only five are women,” says Anni-Frid Lyngstad, who is a fusion physicist and chair of the Nobel Committee for Physics 2024.

Lyngstad explained: “We have worked with computer scientists at Lund University to develop an AI system that can evaluate nominations in a way that eliminates much of the gender and other biases that can creep into the selection process.”
