Artificial Intelligence for Materials Sciences

Welcome to the homepage of the AiMat (Artificial Intelligence for Materials Sciences) group at KIT in which we work on the development of AI and machine learning methods focusing on their application to materials science questions.

The research group headed by junior professor Pascal Friederich was established in 2020 and has been growing ever since. We are therefore always looking for talented students and researchers in computer or natural sciences to join our team!

GCMAC Summerschool
GC-MAC Summerschool

The GC-MAC Summer School 2023 will be held on 18-22 September at KIT. It will cover multiple aspects of materials acceleration platforms (MAPs) for energy materials, e.g. automated synthesis and characterization, integration of simulation methods in materials design, and ML methods for MAPs.
