AI’s new role in science: Supercomputer Emulator
Bishop: They are still computationally expensive. Moreover, because emulators are trained using data, they tend to be no more accurate than their training data. They may also give inaccurate results when faced with scenarios that differ significantly from the ones they were trained on.
