The van der Schaar Lab’s sixteenth Inspiration Exchange session took place virtually on March 4, 2022, and was attended by students and professionals from the AI and machine learning community.
This was an especially interactive session, with a lively Q&A and discussion. The session topic was “Discovery using machine learning.”
To start the session, Mihaela van der Schaar shared her reasons for believing that machine learning can enable new discoveries (both in and beyond the healthcare setting) and why this is a new frontier for machine learning.
Ph.D. students Zhaozhi Qian and Krzysztof Kacprzyk then presented how machine learning can discover governing equations from data, highlighting a recent approach from our lab, and discussed the limitations of previous approaches. The session was then opened up to the audience for Q&A and general discussion.
