How fusion could change the world

Today, we offered an online talk in the University of Edinburgh for free.

Last week, Bella, Lorenzo and myself were able to outline the main points of the talk. We did an online rehearsal to anticipate some questions and answers.

Last week, Bella, Lorenzo and myself were able to outline the main points of the talk. We did an online rehearsal to anticipate some questions and answers.

Bella is a well-informed educator in the fusion field and she explained the process of getting and releasing the energy source using a lithium blanket in a tokamak. I particular liked how she explained the physics behind the scenes of the purple colour of a plasma in simple words to the students.

Lorenzo gave an overview about fusion and the role of Artificial Intelligence to make fusion possible for everyone is the upcoming years. Hopefully in 2040s.

Julita (me) was trying to emphasized the digitalization of a tokamak, and the effort done for around 100 years for several scientists around the world.

I was very glad to see that we reached an audience of about of 52 people.

Some curious questions were raised after our presentations, such as how many tokamaks are in the world, when it will be possible to have sustainable fusion, how IA contributes to this challenge, among other numerical accuracy questions.

Other questions were solved in the box Q/A online by others such as Gulio:

Thanks to Xinran and all the organizers for the opportunity to share our knowledge with more students and future scientists!
