Molecular Foundry Director Persson Describes Revolutionizing Materials Research by Leveraging Supercomputers & Big Data

April 13: At the Materials Research Society’s Spring Meeting Symposium X, Molecular Foundry Director Kristin Persson talked about the exciting era of data-driven materials innovation and design powered, in part, by the Materials Project, a research program that is revolutionizing materials research by leveraging the power of supercomputers and big data. Creating a new material with specific properties has historically been slow, time consuming, resource intensive, and limited by human ingenuity. However, the past several decades have seen an explosion in computational materials capabilities, producing vast quantities of data and leading Persson to speculate, early in her career, about new ways of approaching materials design.
