Scheme of the Workshop

The central questions we’d like to address in this workshop are

                            “How is machine learning useful for physics/chemistry ? “

            “How can physicists/chemists help with the development of machine learning ?“

In particular, we will touch on the following topics

  • Conceptual connections of machine learning and many-body physics

  • Machine learning techniques for solving many-body physics/chemistry problems

  • Statistical and quantum physics perspectives on machine learning

  • Quantum algorithms and quantum hardwares for machine learning


Invited Speakers

The invited speakers include top researchers worldwide with various backgrounds (density functional theory, quantum chemistry, statistical physics, tensor networks, quantum information and computing, strongly correlated electrons etc) and keen interests on machine learning and artificial intelligence.
