Artificial Intelligence for Materials Development and Optimization
Following the Fall 2018 Meeting of the Center for Dielectrics on Saturday, October 13, 2018, from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM, Greg Mulholland of Citrine Informatics will give a seminar on the latest technology in artificial intelligence. The tutorial will take place in the SAS Building on the campus of North Carolina State University in Room, 2229 – 2311 Stinson Drive, Raleigh NC, 27607.
Nearly every field of business and science is hearing about Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. In this workshop, Greg Mulholland, CEO of Citrine Informatics, will introduce the current state of the art for Artificial Intelligence in the development of new materials and optimization of known materials and process. Topics covered will include:
- why materials science has different challenges from most AI applications, how those challenges are being addressed today, and how they could be addressed in the future
- how AI can effectively fit into a materials development workflow as a powerful tool alongside traditional and high-throughput experimental and computational methods
- how to create, understand, and critically evaluate AI models on materials and chemicals data
- the role data plays in AI, and how to organize and structure data such that ML can be used most effectively
This workshop is intended to be an interactive introduction to a complicated topic, so a substantial effort will be made to directly address questions and topics of interest raised by attendees.
