First Monterey Data Conference does Deep Dive into Deep Learning for Science | HPCwire

The Computing Sciences Area (CSA) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory joined forces with the Association for High Speed Computing (AHSC) to organize and support the inaugural Monterey Data Conference, held August 5-8 in Monterey, Calif. 

Berkeley Lab Computing Sciences Associate Lab Director Kathy Yelick gave an invited talk on machine learning for science during the 2019 Monterey Data Conference.

This annual, invitation-only meeting was launched this year to give researchers from DOE national laboratories, facilities, universities, and industry the opportunity to share and showcase the latest advances and challenges in scientific data analysis and computing.

The theme for this year’s event was Deep Learning for Science. The program featured talks from leading scientists from across the country who showed the impact of deep learning on a broad set of applications, including precision agriculture, personalized cancer treatment, materials by design, detecting extreme climate events, controlling fusion reactors, managing networks, and tracking particles in advanced physics experiments. The examples went beyond data analysis problems into design and control of experiments and the derivation and refinement of physical models from data, showing how the scientific process and our understanding are being impacted by these methods. Panel discussions from industry and the DOE Labs explored some of the hardware, software, and methods challenges.
