  • Organized by
  • Giuseppe Carleo, Ph.D.Research Scientist, CCQ, Flatiron Institute
  • Andrew Millis, Ph.D.CCQ Co-Director, Flatiron Institute
  • David Ceperley, Ph.D.University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Date & Time

This virtual conference brings together the fast-growing community of researchers from condensed matter physics, quantum computing, quantum chemistry, and computer science working on the development of machine learning methods to study challenging problems in many-body quantum science.

Topics will include: Neural-network quantum states; Dynamics of many-body quantum systems; Tomography and characterization of quantum machines; Variational Algorithms on Quantum Hardware; Stochastic Optimization in Quantum Monte Carlo methods; ML-enhanced Density Functional Theory. The conference will also feature a session introducing the open-source NetKet software and selected applications.
