Predicting Research Outcomes

The Bradfield Centre

  • Date 26 Mar 2018
  • Time 10:00 - 17:30
  • Address The Bradfield Centre Milton Road CB4 0GF

This one-day meeting, bringing together chemists, engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians and data scientists from both academic and commercial backgrounds, will be a symposium and discussion forum looking at prediction of chemical reaction outcomes through data analysis and acquisition. In particular we aim to identify the barriers currently preventing us from being able to predict reaction outcomes and to propose next steps.

Topics will include the invention of new reactions, data acquisition and understanding mechanisms.
