The Alliance Program announced its Joint Projects Grantees

The Alliance Program is an innovative partnership between Columbia University, École Polytechnique, Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, and Sciences Po. The four universities collaborate to develop academic partnerships and exchanges through joint projects, visiting professorships, doctoral mobility grants, and student-driven initiatives.

Last December, the Alliance Program announced its Joint Projects Grantees. The Alliance Scientific Committee selected six research and teaching collaborations from a competitive p0ol of applications. “Re‐discovering (Astro)Physics Laws Using” is the title of Columbia University - École Polytechnique joint project undertaken by Nakul Verma, teaching faculty member at Columbia University, focusing on Machine Learning, Algorithms and Theory, Ansaf Salleb-Aouissi, Lecturer  at the Department of Computer Science at Columbia University, Michalis Vazirgiannis, Professor, Head of the Data Science and Mining team of the Computer Science Laboratory of l'X, Nikolaos Tziortziotis, Postdoctoral researcher at the Data Science and Mining team of the Computer Science Laboratory of l'X and Sammy Khalife, PhD candidate at the the Computer Science Laboratory of l'X.

In this proposal, the PIs plan to leverage the computational power of DNN architectures to automate discovery of laws of physics using relevant experimental data, thus enabling scientists in fast data analysis and hypothesis generation. As proof of concept, they will primarily focus on automated “re-”discovery of existing physics laws in quantum physics and astrophysics domains. They then plan to test the system on new experimental data to help discover new physical laws.
