'Time' reports that researchers at Google
DeepMind have used artificial intelligence
to predict structures of 2.2 million new materials. .
DeepMind published 381,000 of the
crystal structures that the AI predicts
to be the most stable.
The breakthrough, which could have wide-reaching
benefits for renewable energy and computing, increases
the number of known stable materials by a factor of ten.
While many of the materials still need to be
synthesized and tested, the findings are
predicted to accelerate the discovery of new materials. .
Those new materials could play
a central role in energy storage,
solar cells and superconductor technology. .
While materials play a very critical
role in almost any technology, we as
humanity know only about a few
tens of thousands of stable materials, Ekin Dogus Cubuk, a Staff Research Scientist at Google Brain, via 'Time'.
'Time' reports that only specific combinations
of elements can be used to form stable solids.
Google DeepMind has now partnered with
external researchers who have successfully
synthesized 736 of the new materials.
Among the 381,000 materials added to the Inorganic
Crystal Structures Database (ICSD) were 528 potential
lithium ion conductors that could be used in batteries.
52,000 new layered compounds were also predicted with
a similar structure to graphene, which could be
used to produce new superconducting materials. .
We believe that some of
these will be made in the lab,
which will hopefully lead
to very exciting applications, Ekin Dogus Cubuk, a Staff Research Scientist at Google Brain, via 'Time'
