Machine learning promises high-quality predictions at tremendously reduced computational cost compared to standard quantum chemistry methods. Several machine learning models for single-molecule properties have already demonstrated considerable success. However, standard approaches to machine learning in chemistry are not well suited to modeling intermolecular interactions, which govern protein-ligand binding, biomolecular structure, and properties of condensed phases. This talk will explain the challenges for applying machine learning to intermolecular interactions, and our approaches to overcome them. We have examined pure machine learning methods, physics-based models whose parameterization has been accelerated by machine learning, and combinations of the two. The speed and accuracy of the resulting methods will be illustrated for protein-ligand interactions.
