Target scope of Conference

Deep learning plays a central role in recent developments in research in artificial intelligence (AI). Various ideas based on physics are found in the research of deep learning, and consequently, deep learning and physics are related intimately. This international conference is dedicated to (1) applications of deep learning to physics, (2) discovering similarities among deep learning and physics, and (3) leading to new paradigm in physics motivated by deep learning. Researchers in related fields are welcome to attending discussions at the conference.
