The article mentions Prof. Manish Parashar, who will co-lead one of the focus areas on Discovery Science. He and his collaborators will look for ways to accelerate discovery in the natural sciences by applying machine learning tools and large scale hardware and software systems to massive amounts of observational data, in astrophysics, marine microbiology and materials design, among other disciplines.
