11/20/2023 - The NOMAD Artificial Intelligence Toolkit: Turning materials science data into knowledge and understanding

"Artificial intelligence" (AI) may seem like a buzzword akin to the "nanotechnology" craze of the 2000s, but it is inevitably finding its way into scientific applications, including in the materials sciences. In this December 2022 article published in npj Computational Materials, Sbailò et al. present their AI-driven Novel Materials Discovery (NOMAD) toolkit as an extension of their NOMAD Repository & Archive, focused on making materials science data FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable), as well as AI-ready. After introducing the details of their workspace and goals towards adding notebook-based tools to the NOMAD Repository & Archive, the authors dive into the details of NOMAD AI Toolkit. They close by noting their toolkit "offers a selection of notebooks demonstrating such [AI-based] workflows, so that users can understand step by step what was done in publications and readily modify and adapt the workflows to their own needs." They add that the system "will allow for enhanced reproducibility of data-driven materials science papers and dampen the learning curve for newcomers to the field."
