An ICTP - WE Heraeus Meeting

The intersection of machine learning and quantum simulation is emerging as a fruitful research area. This combined school and workshop will bring together leading experts as well as interested students to foster exchange between communities and explore synergies between the fields.
In the past two decades, major advancements in machine learning (ML) and quantum simulation have been achieved. ML algorithms define the state of the art in natural language processing and image recognition; quantum simulation is opening up new avenues to investigate correlated matter. Both fields are becoming increasingly intertwined in recent attempts to provide insights in quantum many-body physics. An objective of developing machine learning-enhanced numerical methods and quantum simulation is to push our capabilities to study exotic phases or non-equilibrium states. Furthermore, while quantum simulators emerge as a new tool to address these outstanding research topics, their advent raises further questions that ML approaches can potentially solve.
This event aims to discuss, where quantum challenges match the natural strengths of ML and, reversely, the quantum applications call for developing new ML techniques.
The event will revolve around the four core topics:
1. Quantum simulation of many-body systems
2. Data-driven characterization of quantum systems
3. Quantum state representation with machine learning models
4. Protocol optimization for quantum control
