Creativity is a professors crucial characteristic. In this fall Prof. Müller refreshes his out-of-the-box thinking with a sabbatical. The co-director of the BBDC uses the time to meet leading researchers in the US. In particular, he co-organizes the “Understanding Many-Particle Systems with Machine Learning” of US Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics at UCLA. The goal of this workshop is to bring together the fields of Mathematics, Physics, and Machine Learning. Besides this he gave talks at the UC Berkeley and Google.
