Highlight about Δ-ML Approach Most Viewed in 2015
A highlight by Jan Jensen about the Δ-ML approach proposed by us  was the most viewed highlight in Computational Chemistry Highlights in 2015. This marks a pleasant ending of the last-year research on improving accuracy of computationally less demanding methods for computational chemistry. The Δ-ML approach along with the automatic parametrization technique (APT)  corrects faults of both lower level quantum mechanics (QM) and ML approaches by combining them in hybrid QM/ML techniques. The highlighted technique uses ML to correct errors of quantum chemical calculations after they were performed, while APT uses ML to improve quantum chemical method before running calculations with it.
