How to Form a Materials Informatics Strategy

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: March 2019

Materials informatics applies data science and AI methods to better understand the use, selection, development, and discovery of materials. As an emerging technology with strong momentum during the past year, it is used across the value chain, from upstream materials and chemicals developers to downstream product manufacturers. In this report, we provide a comprehensive understanding of the key players and their activities in this space. Specifically, we will review different application areas, data challenges, and recent developments from both startups and large corporations. We also provide our vision on the near future of how materials informatics will expand from materials to parts and products, from working with a few R&D units to establishing a whole platform for each part of the value chain. Finally, we discuss why clients across the value chain should overcome the data-sharing fear to work on materials informatics. We also propose three strategies to engage with materials informatics and advise on how to form a strategy that works the best.
