Second IQCC Challenges Live Talk: Machine learning for excited states

The IQCC started a new series of online talks to address challenges in the research fields where the IQCC is playing a role, through the investigations of one of the Principal Investigators. An external expert is invited to give a seminar, together with one of the junior researchers of the IQCC. These complementary views will highlight the current state-of-the-art on that topic, discuss possible bottlenecks and how they are being solved, and will provide an outlook into the future.

The kickoff of the series took place in September and coming Thursday, November 25, there will be the next edition which deals with Machine Learning for Excited States. The IQCC Challenges will be held online through the GoToMeet platform, and is free to attend to anyone interested in the topic. Please register if you would like to join us at the kickoff meeting next week, or have a look at the upcoming topics!
