The IoP had an inaugural Physics in the Spotlight event from 21st-25th October 2019, celebrating the move to their new head quarters in King’s Cross with events organised by many groups together. On the 24th of October the Computational Physics group (CPG) hosted a one-day meeting on machine learning applications in physics. This was in collaboration with the Particle Accelerator and Beam group, the Plasma Physics group and Polymer Physics group.
Attendees of the Machine Learning conference
The plenary sessions were a sell-out, hitting the 140 capacity of the lecture theatre in the new venue, showing the appetite and interest in the field. With keynote speakers from the Alan Turing Institute, STFC’s Scientific Machine Learning group, and an ex-accelerator scientist turned FinTech Machine Learning consultant who refreshed us on the journey machine learning had taken since his work with it on ion beam spectroscopy a decade ago, there was a…
