DoD Communities Of Interest: Materials and Manufacturing Processes
Subject: DEFTECH Coffee Call: Autonomous Materials Design
Due Date: 0900 1 April 2022
Government Organization: NC Defense Technology Transition (DEFTECH)
Join us this Friday, April 1, 2022, @ 0900-10A00 ET for another virtual DEFTECH Coffee Call (see TEAMS Link Below)
Topic: Super-hard and ultra-high-temperature ceramics and machine learning approaches to phase stability of alloys.
Guest Speaker: Prof. Stefano Curtarolo is an AI-Materials Scientist. His research interests lie at the intersection of materials science, artificial intelligence, and the autonomous discovery of new materials. His current research focuses on theory and discovery of disordered super-hard and ultra-high-temperature ceramics and machine learning approaches to phase stability of alloys. After graduating from MIT, he joined Duke University in 2003. Since then, he has received many national/international awards and recognitions (e.g., ONR Yip, NSF Career, PECASE, IUPAP, Humboldt-Bessel, Highly-Cited 2021). At Duke, he directs the Center for Autonomous Materials Design, which has started and currently maintains the AFLOW international data-consortium about materials-information and tools for millions of compounds. The Center and the consortium have also organized several educational [aflow.org/aflow-school/] and outreach initiatives in accelerated materials design [aflow.org/seminars/]. Curtarolo currently leads a MURI team, awarded in 2021, on “SPICES: Spinodal-hardened high-entropy ceramics”.
Every Friday, 0900 Eastern, grab your coffee, bring your ideas, and join the NC Defense Technology Transition (DEFTECH) Community for an open, informal, virtual “Coffee Call” to discuss various topics regarding Science, Technology, and Innovation and national security problems that they may address.
Show up early at 0800 for the DEFTECH Early Bird to practice your pitch using the DEFTECH TIDE quad chart and receive feedback from the DEFTECH Team, other businesses, and government friends joining the call. At 0830, we will conduct a brief Opps Update to review current federal technology opportunities. *Note: The link is the same as the Coffee Call.*
