AI for Material Science

More about augmenting experimentation.  In a predictively generate plus test kind of approach. 

How AI is helping us discover materials faster than ever

We can predict which compounds can create materials before setting foot in a lab    By Angela Chen      @chengela

For hundreds of years, new materials were discovered through trial and error, or luck and serendipity. Now, scientists are using artificial intelligence to speed up the process.

Recently, researchers at Northwestern University used AI to figure out how to make new metal-glass hybrids 200 times faster than they would have doing experiments in the lab. Other scientists are building databases of thousands of compounds so that algorithms can predict which ones combine to form interesting new materials. Others yet are using AI to mine published papers for “recipes” to make these materials. .... "
