Machine learning (ML) and data-driven computational approaches have recently emerged as promising new tools to tackle complex optimization and computational problems. This workshop offers exciting new developments in applying such approaches to address challenging theoretical and computational issues in molecular sciences. Experts in quantum calculations, dynamics, molecular reactions, and materials design will share unique ideas and challenges.
