The first AIM workshop is organised by the Dutch Mathematics Clusters and its goal is to highlight the role of mathematics as a key enabling technology within the emerging field of scientific machine learning, and bring together researchers across mathematics.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) will have a growing impact on all sciences and business sectors, our private lives, and society as a whole. It is pre-eminently a multidisciplinary technology that connects scientists from a wide variety of research areas, from behavioural science and ethics to mathematics and computer science. Without downplaying the importance of its interdisciplinary nature, it is apparent that mathematics can and should play an active role. As Robert Dijkgraaf observed in NRC in May 2019: ''Artificial intelligence is in its adolescent phase, characterised by trial and error, self-aggrandisement, credulity and lack of systematic understanding''. Mathematics can contribute to this much-needed systematic understanding of AI and at the same time lay the ground work for further improvements.

In the two-day program we showcase recent research on the interface between mathematics and AI. There will be plenty of time for informal discussions, as well as strategic sessions.
