In this video from the HPC User Forum at Argonne, Steve Conway from Hyperion Research presents: Research Findings: HPC-Enabled AI.

AI adds fourth branch to the scientific method, inferencing. Inferencing complements theory, experiments and established simulation methods. Essentially, inferencing is the ability to guess, based on incomplete information. At the same time, simulation is becoming much more data intensive with the rise of iterative methods. When inferencing is applied to
data intensive simulation, the result is intelligent simulation.
