1st Workshop on Scientific-Driven Deep Learning (SciDL)


July 1, 2020
8:00am to 2:30pm
Virtual Presentation


BIDS Senior Fellow Michael Mahoney — with colleagues from UC Berkeley, Berkeley Lab, and the University of Washington — will host the 1st Workshop on Scientific-Driven Deep Learning (SciDL) on Wednesday, July 1, 2020. The event will be held virtually via Zoom. Register here.

Deep learning is playing a growing role in the area of fluid dynamics, climate science and in many other scientific disciplines. Classically, deep learning has focused on an model agnostic learning approaches ignoring any prior knowledge that is known about the problem under consideration. However, limited data can severely challenge our ability to train complex and deep models for scientific applications. This workshop focuses on scientific-driven deep learning to explore challenges and solutions for more robust and interpretable learning.
