I am Shaipranesh S. I will be working with DeepChem this summer as a GSoC student.
I am a sophomore at the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani. I am passionate about Machine Learning and am interested in building Machine Learning models for scientific applications. Since February, I have been a part of DeepChem’s community and am incredibly excited to work with all of you and hoping!
About the Project
My project aims to add a model to deepchem called the ferminet, a deep-learning-based variational Monte Carlo technique used to add accuracy to wavefunctions obtained from the Hartree-Fock method by including the electron correlation factor. The model is a permutation equivariant neural network and involves a second-order optimizer and an MCMC sampler.
Project description is available here.
I am excited about this project, and do follow this thread to see my weekly updates!!
