Projects & ML4Science
Final projects last year are done either in ML4Science in collaboration with any lab of EPFL, UniL or other academic institution, or the Reproducibility Challenge for ML papers, or one of the predefined ML challenges.
All info about the interdisciplinary ML4Science projects is available on the separate page here.
