About the Conference

DIET23 focuses on how companies, academics, and governments are using and planning to use innovative technologies and methodologies in nuclear energy, medicine, regulation and more. Disruptive, Innovative, and Emerging Technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Analysis, Big Data, and Digital Twins, are already being used to obtain new insight, perform analysis more efficiently and more accurately, be more sustainable and improve safety. Other technologies such as Adaptive Manufacturing, Digital Twins and Virtual Reality are being actively explored and implemented by those involved in nuclear activities and research.
This international conference is seeking presentations from individuals, organizations and academia pertinent to these and other innovation technologies either deployed or being considered for deployment in the full spectrum of nuclear related activities and research. Authors require to only prepare a presentation.

Topics and Themes

Innovation has been the key to the success of nuclear for the past 60 years and more collaboration is needed to meet the challenges it faces.
DIET23 provides a forum for this collaboration through exchanging views, ideas and information.
In keeping with this vision, and to help direct the development of the conference program, the theme of the conference is:
DIET 2023: Innovation Unleashed


Topics for the plenary and technical session include:
  • Data Analysis, innovative approaches/methodologies
  • Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
  • Regulatory frameworks
  • Big Data
  • Digital Twins
  • Virtual Reality
  • Robotics
  • Nano-technology
  • Fusion
  • Additive Manufacturing
  • And more
Join us and share in latest knowledge and experiences in adopting innovative ideas, methodologies, and algorithms.

New This Year!

You told us the one change you most wanted to see in 2023 was the opportunity to network in person. We heard you, and this year’s conference will be a hybrid of in-person and online events. The first day of the conference, November 6, will be in-person in downtown Toronto (location TBA).
The last two days, November 7 and 8, will be entirely online.
Join us for an exciting workshop on generative artificial intelligence! Learn about cutting-edge text-to-text, image, and sound generation AI technologies, including prompt engineering techniques. Discover how these technologies can be leveraged to optimize your workflows and streamline your operations. Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the unlimited possibilities of generative AI!
More details coming soon!

Machine Learning Tutorial

An easy-to-follow demo of computer vision machine learning using Python and Tensorflow.
This workshop requires some prior Python programming experience, but those without can still follow the machine learning training and inference process.
In this workshop you’ll see how to design, define, train, and use a Tensorflow model to identify different types of clothing, using the “Fashion MNIST” dataset. We will start with the basic notebook from the Tensorflow examples, then build on it, time permitting, by:
– Exploring misclassifications,
– Improving the model design,
– Reviewing overfitting, and
– Monitoring model training.
For more information, please contact Aleem Juma at aleem.juma@opg.com
This year our conference program is presenting three full days including a new vendor discussion section.
The conference will provide invaluable opportunities for networking, professional development, exchanging ideas, technical discussions, and updates on the AI/ML-based implementations and ongoing efforts in nuclear programs.
Our speakers play a large role in the success of our conference annually, and this year will not be any different. Becoming a speaker in the vendor discussion section gives you access to our top-tier industry attendees from Canada and visibility to your organization.
To learn more about our current opportunities and to get your organization in front of who matters in the industry, please email Nazgol Shahbandi at nazgol.shahbandi@opg.com
