MARVEL Junior Seminar — April 2017

April 6 2017 at EPFL, MED 0 1418

Welcome to the sixth MARVEL Junior Seminar on Thursday April 6, 2017, 12:15 pm, EPFL, room MED 0 1418.

Vamshi Mohan Katukuri (EPFL, C3MP) gives a presentation on 'Quantum chemical calculations for solids: what can we do?' and Quang Van Nguyen (EPFL, LIONS) on 'Quantum properties prediction from optimization point of view'. The seminar is facilitated by Fernando Gargiulo.

The MARVEL Junior Seminars aim to intensify interactions between the MARVEL Junior scientists belonging to different research groups located at EPFL. The EPFL community interested in MARVEL research topics is very welcome to attend. We believe that these events will be central for establishing a vibrant community.

Each seminar consists of two presentations of 25 minutes each, allowing to present on a scientific question in depth, each presentation being followed by 10 minutes for discussion. The discussion is facilitated and timed by the chairperson of the day whose mission is to ensure active lively interactions between the audience and the speakers.

Pizza is served as of 11:45 in the MED hall (floor 0), and after the seminar at 13:30 you are cordially invited for coffee and dessert to continue discussion with the speakers.

Abstract —  Quantum properties prediction from optimization point of view - Quang Van Nguyen

We compare improvements in prediction (with respect to root-mean-squared root error (RMSE), mean absolute error (MAE) and max absolute error (maxAE) of different regression models and of multiple kernel regression models using ball constraint and simplex constraint.
