DY 11: Focus Session: Physics Meets ML II – Understanding Machine Learning as Complex Interacting Systems (joint session DY/TT)

Monday, March 27, 2023, 15:00–18:30, ZEU 250

Machine-learning has recently entered and is now transforming many fields of science, enabling discoveries in a data-driven manner. As a scientific method, however, ML often lacks one defining feature: Explainability. We here seek discussions with pioneers in understanding, explaining, and improving machine learning methods from the point of view as a physical system of interacting elements. In fact, the history of approaching neuronal networks and problems of inference and learning as a problem of statistical physics has a long history, with a number of important discoveries early on. The close relation between spin glasses and neuronal networks are being currently exploited to address pressing questions, such as the remarkable generalization properties of neuronal networks despite their massive overparameterization and their behavior reminiscent of renormalization group transformations.
