IWR School 2019: “A Crash Course in Machine Learning with Applications in Natural- and Life Sciences (ML4Nature)”

We would like to bring to your attention our upcoming IWR School which will focus on machine
learning with applications from Natural Sciences and Life Sciences. The school will take place
from September 23 to 27, 2019, in Heidelberg, and addresses young researchers (PhD,
PostDoc, Master) from Natural and Life Sciences who want to learn more about machine
A background in Machine Learning is not required. Besides introducing the basic concepts we
teach selected topics in more depth, such as deep learning, metric learning, transfer learning,
Bayesian inverse problems, and causality. Experts from machine learning, Natural Science and
Life Science explain how these machine learning approaches are utilized to solve problems in
their respective fields of research.
