Intro to Machine Learning Talk at KITP

With the huge growth of interest in machine learning in the private sector and across academia, plus the apparent connections between machine learning and statistical physics, it was only a matter of time before physicists started exploring the uses of machine learning for their own work. Recently there has been an explosion of machine learning papers appearing on the cond-mat (condensed matter) section of the arxiv. (See our list of these papers.)

Roger Melko explained the basics of machine learning and some of his group's work to attendees of the "Synthetic Quantum Matter" program at the KITP in Santa Barbara.
