A team from and the Toyota Technological Institute, Chicago, and NIMS have in cooperation created a Computer-Aided Material Design (CAMaD) system which has the capability of mining data linked to material designing including fabrication processes and material structures and properties along with the option of organizing and visualizing their relationship with each other as well. The current technological innovation helps gather the information obtained from hundreds of scientific and technical articles to be briefed in a single chart for further rationalizing plus expediting the material design.
The durability of the material depends on the properties which are basically influenced by the fabrication process and structural variations. The desirable performance of the material strictly relates to the factors affecting the material properties. Right now Material informatics, an information science-based approach to materials research, is being used to understand the factor dependency in the performance of the material through huge sets of data extracted using deep learning. The tedious task of material data collection through constructive database has put the materials informatics on the backseat. The integration of process-structure-property-performance relationships via the informatics systems in material design is a labor-intensive task.
This research group has developed a system using general language processing plus supervised deep learning so as to extract and recognize relations between factors connected to processes, properties, and structures imperative to a material design by commanding computers to read the script of scientific articles other than numerical data. The material designers list out the needed materials on the basis of which the computer collects the relevant data based on material type and strength relationship plus structure-controlling fabrication processes helping generate a visual aid to picture these relationships. The natural language processing and deep learning integrated AI source code has been made freely available for people. Dr. Haim Suchowski and his team from Tel Aviv University has used deep-learning computer networks, AI, developed based on the human brain architecture to create a metamaterial compound for energy generation and medical use. However, the manufacturing error rate is a minus point for the current nanophotonics breakthrough.
