Title: AI for Science

Abstract: Modern machine learning has had remarkable success in all kinds of AI applications, and is also poised to change fundamentally the way we do research in traditional areas of science and engineering. In this talk, I will give an overview on some of the theoretical and practical issues that I consider most important in this new exciting area.
