Artificial Intelligence for Science Town Hall Meeting

Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel
Washington, DC
October 22-23, 2019

The U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research, Artificial Intelligence for Science Town Hall Meeting will be held at the Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel. The meeting will begin on October 22, 2019, and will end on October 23, 2019.

The DOE National Laboratories are convening four town hall meetings aimed at collecting community input on the opportunities and challenges facing the scientific community in the era of convergence of High Performance Computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and the expected integration of large-scale simulation, advanced data analysis, data driven predictive modeling, theory, and high-throughput experiments. The term being used to represent the next generation of methods and scientific opportunity is “AI for Science”. The DC Town Hall is the fourth in the series of town hall meetings.

The town halls aim to address critical research and facility challenges, including the application of AI in various scientific domains, data analysis and management, automation and control of experiments, algorithms and mathematical foundations, challenges of scale within and across data sets, and emerging computer and system level architectures. The facility discussions will address the need for a more tightly integrated national and global-scale data and computing environment that brings together data assets organized and prepared for discovery and integrated with the variety of computing capabilities (AI, machine learning, modeling and simulation, etc.). This environment will need flexible, high-speed networking to connect devices on the edge with centralized and federated computing and data resources, regionally and across the national leadership facilities.

The Artificial Intelligence for Science Town Hall Meeting will be held at the Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel, 999 Ninth Street NW, Washington, DC. The meeting will begin on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 8:00 am and end on Wednesday, October 23, 2019, by 1:15 pm. The registration fee is $150 and will include Continental Breakfast, Lunch and Breaks. If you are a Local Fed you will be able to purchase meals on the registration site or onsite.
