Machine Learning and Quantum Many-Body Physics

  • Organized by
  • Giuseppe Carleo, Ph.D.Research Scientist, CCQ, Flatiron Institute
  • Miles Stoudenmire, Ph.D.Research Scientist, CCQ, Flatiron Institute
Date & Time


This workshop brings together a small number of researchers from quantum physics; condensed matter physics; machine learning; and computer science to discuss applications of machine learning tools and methods to challenging problems in many-body physics, and how ideas from quantum many-body could be applied to machine learning.
