Recommendation

The world’s need for energy is increasing. Because current energy technology has limited efficiency, the search is on for improved materials. Machine learning – the ability of a computer system to improve its routines by analyzing data – can rapidly predict the potential of new materials for energy applications. Graduate students Phil De Luna and Jennifer Wei, as well as professors Yoshua Bengio, Alán Aspuru-Guzik, and Edward Sargent suggest how to help. getAbstract recommends this article to anyone looking for better energy technologies.

In this summary, you will learn

  • What kinds of energy materials scientists are looking for,
  • Why machine learning can ease this search and
  • Which methods improve machine learning for materials discovery.
