Karianne Bergen, Assistant Professor of Data Science and Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences, and Ph.D. student Peter Van Katwyk are co-authors of a review paper recently published in Nature. Dr. Bergen leads the DSI’s Scientific Machine Learning Research Group (SciML); she and her student co-authored “Scientific discovery in the age of artificial intelligence,” published on August 2, with a number of colleagues from other institutions. The authors describe the increasing use of artificial intelligence throughout the scientific community, outlining such breakthroughs as self-supervised learning and geometric deep learning. The paper also discusses challenges posed by the rapid growth of AI in scientific discovery and suggests directions for progress in theory, methods, software, and hardware infrastructure to maximize the benefits of AI through its responsible and rigorous use.
