IADS Artificial Intelligence for Materials Discovery Sandpit
20 October 2020
Queen Mary's Institute of Applied Data Science is organising a series of sandpits aiming to propose and develop ideas for new cross-disciplinary research and impact funding calls and programmes.
Our first sandpit is scheduled for Tuesday, 27 October 2020, 14:00-16:00 and has a research theme of 'Artificial Intelligence for Materials Discovery'. This two-hour sandpit workshop will focus on discussing challenges in the artificial intelligence and data science assisted materials discovery.
Materials discovery is a vast space and building on research strengths within the University with certain types of material, there is scope to work on forming cross-disciplinary teams and networking in order to discuss and identify promising new types of AI assisted material discovery for applications in: energy storage and conversion, radiation detection, biomedical technologies.
This event will bring together data science experts and material scientists from across Queen Mary to seed ideas for multi-disciplinary research proposals to tackle challenges related to the discovery of data-driven materials. Interested participants will share their research challenges, propose, discuss and develop ideas for novel projects in theme-specific breakout room discussions. Internal and external funding opportunities will then be briefly presented at the end of the sandpit events. These will include: the recent 1billion Horizon 2020 call for the Green Deal scheme, EPSRC funding, STFC IPS and CLASP 2021 (Challenges: Energy and Healthcare) and internal IAA / Proof of Concept funding.
Event title: AI for Materials Discovery Sandpit
Date and Time: Tuesday, 27 October, 14:00-16:00
Format: virtual event (via Teams)
