How much can a combination of sequential learning and closed-loop automation accelerate materials discovery?
Our findings illustrate the importance of designing a modeling and discovery workflow which is highly tailored toward the specific problem of interest. In ML and SL for materials discovery, one size does not fit all, traditional error metrics may not be a good predictor of success, and the specifics of the design challenge have important implications for the optimal configuration of materials discovery strategies.
Materials Informatics helps a custom thermoplastic producer rapidly identify custom masterbatch + polymer blends for its customized solutions with far fewer experiments than traditional approaches to product development.
