Deep Learning for Science
In recent years, Deep Learning has revolutionized the fields of computer vision, speech recognition and control systems. Can Deep Learning have a positive impact on domain sciences?
The talk will review NERSC’s current and future strategy in Deep Learning. We will review a range of use cases spanning Climate, Cosmology, Astronomy, High-Energy Physics, Neuroscience and Genomics. We will briefly touch upon efforts in scaling Deep Learning on petascale and exascale platforms in DOE. We will conclude with a list of open challenges and speculations about the role of AI in scientific discovery in the future.
