|In the field of materials science and engineering, studies based on data and artificial intelligence (AI) started around 2015 worldwide, revealing that it started relatively late compared to other research fields. However, over the past few years, AI in the field of materials science and engineering has developed rapidly. So, why have materials researchers become so passionate about AI? This is because the rapid prediction speed and ability to perform research which was impossible with existing technologies have become possible through AI. In this talk, the research trends and cases for AI in the field of materials science and engineering will be reviewed, and its future development direction will be discussed. In addition, I will introduce the status of the relevant research being carried out at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology.
