💦 The Potential of Machine Learning to Enhance Computational Fluid Dynamics
Machine learning is rapidly becoming a core technology for scientific computing, with numerous opportunities to advance the field of computational fluid dynamics. This paper highlights some of the areas of highest potential impact, including to accelerate direct numerical simulations, to improve turbulence closure modelling, and to develop enhanced reduced-order models.
🤓 Mathematicians Derive the Formulas for Boundary Layer Turbulence 100 Years After the First Formulation
Turbulence makes many people uneasy or downright queasy. And it's given researchers a headache, too. Mathematicians have been trying for a century or more to understand the turbulence that arises when a flow interacts with a boundary, but a formulation has proven elusive.
🧠 ML by Georgia Tech (Free Course)
The first part of the course covers Supervised Learning, a machine learning task that makes it possible for your phone to recognise your voice, your email to filter spam, and for computers to learn a bunch of other cool stuff.
In part two, you will learn about Unsupervised Learning. Ever wonder how Netflix can predict what movies you'll like? Or how Amazon knows what you want to buy before you do? Such answers can be found in this section!
