Machine Learning for Materials Research Bootcamp 2018 & Workshop on Machine Learning Quantum Materials
July 30 - August 03, 2018
Institute for Bioscience & Biotechnology Research (Gaithersburg, Maryland)
We've secured a block of hotel rooms, please check the Hotels page for more information.
Program & Topics have been updated
This year's topics and program has been updated.
The bootcamp consists of four days of lectures and hands-on exercises covering a range of data analysis
topics from data pre-processing through advanced machine learning analysis techniques. Example topics
- Identifying important features in complex/high dimensional data
- Visualizing high dimensional data to facilitate user analysis.
- Identifying the fabrication 'descriptors' that best predict variance in functional properties.
- Quantifying similarities between materials using complex/high dimensional data
The hands-on exercises will focus on demonstrating practical use of machine learning tools on real
materials data. Attendees will learn to analyze a range of data types from scalar properties such as
material hardness to high dimensional spectra and micrographs.
The workshop will feature talks by top researchers in the field as well as open discussions in which
attendees can discuss their data analysis needs with experts. Details for the Workshop are still to come.
