Summer 2022 Workshop Series

Advanced Research Directions in AI for Science and Security

July 26-28, 2022

University of California, Davis

Davis, California

Workshop 2: AI for Advanced Property Inference and Inverse Design and Foundational AI for Scientific Knowledge Discovery, Integration, and Synthesis

Hosted by the University of California, Davis (MSI)

Co-organized by

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

This workshop will tackle two of six identified research areas: AI for Advanced Property Inference and Inverse Design, and Foundational AI for Scientific Knowledge Discovery, Integration and Synthesis. In addition, the workshop will cover cross-cutting research and infrastructure subtopics such as data management, Al hardware architectures, Al software frameworks, foundational mathematics for Al, and large-scale Al workflows, with the goal of determining the priority research topics, advanced research directions, and high-level investments needed for DOE to lead the world in the development and use of Al for Science and Security.

The planning horizon for the workshops is 1-3 years, 3-5 years, and 10+ years, and the output of the workshops will be an integrated report that can support program planning, and investment priorities, and can serve as a clear articulation of the transformation potential of Al across DOE and NNSA mission areas. The report will also address the needs for data generation, data integration, and data management to drive best-in-class Al models, covering the integration of Al with modeling and simulation and the integration of Al with DOE national user facilities.

The invite-only workshops will be hosted at HBCU/MSI universities to increase engagement with underrepresented groups and provide opportunities for students and faculty members of the host universities to fully participate. Each workshop is expected to bring together over 200 researchers, including domain scientists, computer scientists, mathematicians, Al developers, and PIs from across the DOE laboratories and universities. Domain scientists will also be invited from the Office of Science, NNSA, DOE Energy programs, and Earth shot clusters. Select representatives from Industry will also be invited.

There will be a registration fee for this workshop once your request to attend is reviewed you will be sent a registration link separately.
