Why do data-driven ‘black-box’ methods fail?

- May output result that is physically inconsistent
- Easy to learn spurious relationships that look good only on training and test data
- Can lead to poor generalization outside the available data (out-of-sample prediction tasks)

- Interpretability is absent
- Discovering the mechanism of an underlying process is crucial for scientific advancements

Physics-Informed Neural Networks (PINNs)

- Take full advantage of data science methods with the accumulated prior knowledge of scientific theories $\rightarrow$ Improve predictive performance
- Integration of domain knowledge to overcome the issue of imbalanced data & data shortage

- The Universal Approximation Theorem
- Neural Networks are capable of approximating any Borel measurable function
- Neural Networks (1989)
