AI for Science Bootcamp

Jun 25 09:00 - Jun 26 12:30 CEST

The AI for Science Bootcamp provides an overview of AI methods for differential equations that describe physical systems.


How can one use AI and especially deep learning in differential equations in order to train modells of physical systems?

The AI for Science Bootcamp provides a step-by-step overview of the fundamentals of deep neural networks and walks attendees through the hands-on experience of building and improving deep learning models for applications related to scientific computing and physical systems defined by differential equations.

The material will cover more advanced topics, such as physics-informed neural networks (PINNs) and operator learning and make use of tools like NVIDIA Modulus to develop and train the models. Furthermore, this online bootcamp is a hands-on learning experience where we will guide you through step-by-step instructions with teaching assistants on hand to help throughout.


  • Basic experience with Python and PyTorch. 
  • We recommend basic knowledge of neural networks.
  • No GPU programming experience is required
