Mini-symposium (MS) 

MS9:  Deep Learning Methods for Data Driven Models

Organizers: Zhu Wang, University of South Carolina

                     Lili Ju, University of South Carolina

Abstract: Modern sensor technology and data acquisition capability have led to the explosive production of digital data and information. Data-driven approaches based on model reduction methods or machine learning techniques are powerful tools for extracting important characteristics and essential representations from the massive data, affecting every branch of science and social life with unprecedented impact. Although deep learning has achieved tremendous successes in many areas such as computer vision and speech recognition, challenges still exist in many scientific and engineering areas. This mini-symposium will focus on recent advances in data-driven approaches using emerging deep learning algorithms together with their applications in scientific research and engineering.
