The Machine Learning Revolution in Materials Research

Sep 24, 2019 12:00pm ‐ Sep 24, 2019 1:30pm

Standard: Free


Machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) are quickly becoming common-place in materials research. In addition to the standard workflow of fitting a model to a large set of data in order to make predictions, the materials community is finding novel and meaningful ways to integrate AI within their work. The July, 2019 issue of the MRS Bulletin highlighted a few of these applications.  The articles in the issue show that AI/ML is delivering real-world, practical solutions to materials problems, and we need AI/ML methods and models that are more fluent in materials science.

The talks in this webinar expanded on the material presented in the MRS Bulletin issue as well as the MRS Communications Special Issue on Artificial Intelligence.   An interactive Q&A session was held with the speakers following each talk.
