The machine learning algorithms that make self-driving cars, virtual personal assistants, and computer vision work are also changing how physicists investigate matter at the quantum level. Teachers attending the conference will first get an accessible introduction to the topic—no quantum mechanics or machine learning background needed! Then, in interactive lectures, they will hear world-class physicists explain how they are using machine learning tools in their research.

AUDIENCE: high school physics teachers

COST: Free. Some funds are available to assist with travel and lodging expenses.
