Materials Research: New High-Performance Computer
A new high-performance computer for materials research has now gone into operation at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT): With the 1.2-million-euro computer, researchers can simulate the structural composition of future materials and thus investigate their properties even before they exist. This could enable scientists to develop new materials that can be used in medicine or energy research, for example.
"The simulation calculations generate huge amounts of data, for example about material behaviour under specific conditions. With modern data science applications, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, we can gain knowledge about the properties of materials and thus develop new materials much faster," says Britta Nestler, professor of microstructure simulation at the KIT Institute for Applied Materials.
