Autonomous Materials Research

This special session will feature four leaders in the emerging discipline of autonomous materials research. Autonomous research employs artificial intelligence, robotics, and statistics to perform both experiments and simulations that optimally increase the information needed to map the performance-property-structure-processing linkages needed to design new materials.

Lead Session Organizer: James Warren, National Institute of Standards and Technology
