The Lawrence Hall of Science
The public science center of the University of California, Berkeley.
The Lawrence is getting ready to re-open. We’ll see you on October 30th!
For over 50 years, The Lawrence Hall of Science has been at the forefront of science education.
On a visit to The Lawrence, students collaborate to investigate new ideas as they become scientists and engineers for a day.
We partner with school districts to support science learning. We offer district-wide elementary, middle, and high school programs, either virtually or in-person.
We collaborate with a range of partners to innovate in science education. Together, we go further.
How can we improve machine learning to better solve complex scientific problems? By advancing methods that are built to handle sophisticated algorithms and the three-dimensional geometry of physical systems. In this Midday Science Cafe, we’ll learn from two researchers tackling these challenges in order to make machine learning more effective. We will hear from Dr. Daniel S. Brown, who is helping robots to safely and efficiently interact with and learn from humans. We will also learn from Dr. Tess Smidt about Euclidean neural networks, which are extremely data-efficient and adept at handling three-dimensional data. With these networks, scientists are able to scale computationally expensive physics simulations to unprecedented system sizes.
