Building Foundation Models for Science: What happens if we build massive AI models on scientific data?
Shirley Ho (Center for Computational Astrophysics, Flatiron Institute)

In recent years, the fields of natural language processing and computer vision have been revolutionized by the success of large models pretrained with task-agnostic objectives on massive, diverse datasets (e.g. ChatGPT). These so-called "foundation models" have enabled transfer learning on entirely new scales, and have outperformed supervised training models across numerous problems. I will discuss the Polymathic AI initiative, a collaboration between researchers at the Flatiron Institute and scientists around the world. Polymathic AI is designed to spur scientific discovery using similar technology to that powering ChatGPT, we call it "Foundation Models". Using Polymathic AI, scientists will be able to model a broad range of physical systems across different scales.
