Machine learning methods are taking a growing place in scientific research. Chemical and material discovery are examples of fields in which they have seen a recent surge in popularity. Current large scale projects in this line of research include for example the search for a cure to COVID-19 or efficient materials for solar cells.

In this talk, I will aim to give a friendly introduction to some popular machine learning methods used in chemistry and material science. This will include 'classical' machine learning and deep learning. I will also talk about the so-called generative methods that could prove useful in discovery applications.
