The New York Academy of Sciences
Advances in AI for Materials
Posted December 02, 2020
Previous conferences and workshops covering artificial intelligence (AI) for Materials Science have mainly focused on introducing AI into materials simulations, which is only the first step in new materials discovery. These efforts have largely ignored AI’s promise for materials synthesis and translating research into high-volume industrial production.
On October 6-7, 2020, the New York Academy of Sciences hosted the AI for Materials symposium to provide a broader perspective on leveraging the benefits of AI in material simulations, experiments, and development efforts for high volume production. The symposium brought together materials scientists, industry experts, and AI researchers to cover the application of AI throughout the entire life cycle of new materials, from lab discovery to industrial production. These leaders also shape future research directions, identify urgent issues in this rising field, and foster interdisciplinary collaboration opportunities.
