Rare chemical compounds are essential to many electronic devices, from smartphones and internet cables to wind turbines and electric cars. However, using these elements to develop new vehicles that can be used in practice is extremely difficult, and its results are unexpected.
Scientists have devised an intelligent way to help us search for new rare earth compounds. Developing a new artificial intelligence system with predictive capabilities will take us to heights beyond what humans can achieve in the laboratory.
The Ai approach is based on “machine learning,” as the program studies the information database – rare earth compounds. And recognizes patterns and correlations, enabling it to detect new potential compounds based on the database.
“Machine learning is essential. We’re talking about new compounds here,” says materials scientist Prashant Singh of the Ames Laboratory at Iowa state university. We have several well-known compounds within the rare earth elements community.”
“Mut, when we talk about new vehicles, it’s quite different. We have a huge number of potential vehicles, which can reach millions. And you cannot verify all possible combinations using theories or experiments.”
Materials Science for Rare Chemical Compounds
In materials science, regularity or chaos refers to the way particles are arranged in the matter. for example, it may result in the form of an ideal crystalline network or another more chaotic and dispersed order. It directly affects the properties and uses of the material.
In this case, the machine learning model is designed using the rare earth vehicle database and some principles of functional density theory, which deal with physical structure analysis. And are ideal for this type of research.
The model’s design depends on the possibility of testing hundreds of permutations very quickly. And testing the stability of the phase for each. In other words, artificial intelligence can judge the potential viability of the rare compound mix without collapsing.
These accounts exist then added to additional information from the internet — found by unique algorithms. And validated, and other checks are carried out to verify their realism.
Design a New Approach to Rare Chemical Compounds
“The goal is not to discover a particular compound but to design a new approach or tool to discover. And anticipate rare earth compounds. Which we have achieved,” says materials scientist Jaroslav Rodrick of Ames laboratory.
Experimental data can also exist reintroduced into the machine learning system, increasing its accuracy and reducing the chance of errors. Such as obtaining rare, unreal ground vehicles.
Currently, the model is still under evaluation and modification before the actual search for rare earth vehicles begins. And researchers believe the move is only the beginning of the newly developed system
It’s good that these techniques used by the team will look for other elusive types of materials in the future. After all, we should not rely too much on the chance to make these kinds of discoveries.
“Our approach will be useful in discovering rare new and complex ground vehicles with new functions.” The researchers wrote at the end of the research.
