This talk will introduce some of the prevailing trends in embedding physics into machine learning.

Machine learning has shown great potential in tackling challenging tasks in a variety of fields. However, training deep neural networks requires big data, not always available for scientific problems. Instead, one alternative approach is to utilize additional information based on the laws of physics to train these networks. Such physics-informed learning integrates (noisy) data and mathematical models, and implements them through neural networks or other kernel-based regression networks. Moreover, it may be feasible to design customized network architectures that inherently satisfy physical constraints, leading to enhanced accuracy, faster training and improved generalization.
