AI research in the CEST group receives funding for Bayesian Optimization of Structure Search

Jukka Corander, Milica Todorovic and Patrick Rinke receive funding from the Academy of Finland for their Artificial Intelligence for Microscopic Structure Search (AIMMS) project. In AIMSS they will couple machine learning with quantum mechanics to advance structure prediction of organic-inorganic hybrid systems.

Functional hybrid materials are engineered blends of organic molecules and inorganic crystals that harness and enhance the functional properties of both substances to perform specific functions for novel applications and devices. To control and engineer the functionality of these hybrid materials, we must better understand their microscopic structural details. In the Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Microscopic Structure Search (AIMSS) project we develop AI methodology and combine it with quantum mechanical simulations. The AI technology in our combined framework provides an essential efficiency breakthrough that enables us to predict, for the first time, the microscopic structure of organic-inorganic hybrid materials. We showcase AIMSS for two flagship applications related to key technologies: nanofriction and hybrid optoelectronics.
