The XIV International Forum of Young Scientists completed its work at KAFU

From April 8 to April 12, 2024, the XIV International Forum of Young Scientists “Modern scientific directions: from applied research to innovation” was held at the Kazakh-American Free University. The large-scale event was timed to coincide with the Day of Science Workers of the Republic of Kazakhstan, as well as the 30th anniversary of the university.

Several foreign scientists took part in the Forum. Professors Thomas Schmitz, Lisa Strauch, Christian Brauweiler and Stefan Noack from Germany gave a course of guest lectures and conducted master classes for KAFU students and teachers.

Science week, which has become traditional at KAFU, allows us to integrate the potential of effective forms of conducting scientific seminars, master classes, lectures by foreign teachers, round tables and dialogue platforms for the scientific community, young scientists and researchers. This year, a whole series of events also took place on the sidelines of the forum.
The key event was the Plenary session of the XIV International Forum of Young Scientists, which was attended by representatives of the scientific community of Kazakhstan, as well as countries of the near and far abroad.

The President of KAFU, Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Kazakhstan Erezhep Alkhairovich Mambetkaziev addressed the participants of the plenary session with a welcoming speech. He noted that in the modern world, the large-scale influence of artificial intelligence on all spheres of life is already undeniable. This is why the topic of using AI in various fields, including education and science, is so relevant today.

At the plenary session, a number of thematic reports were made on priority issues covering a new, actively developing area of research in the field of AI. They aroused interest among the participants, and most importantly, they made it possible to identify the opportunities and problems of using AI technologies and assess the prospects of their use.
