Demystifying Huairou's “Material Genetic Engineering Platform” This will be the world's first-class new material development sit
On May 26, Prof. Wang Weihua, a researcher at the Institute of Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and director of the Key Laboratory of Extreme Condition Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, interviewed by reporters at the Innovation China·Future AI Technology Leaders Summit, revealed that Huairou Science City will soon be built “Material Genetic Engineering”. Platform" important information.
Material genetic engineering? What exactly do you do? Let us listen to the introduction of Academician Wang Weihua and reveal the mysterious material platform.
Wang Weihua said that China's material situation is rather grim, and many key materials are not completely self-sufficient, so we hope to promote the development and industrialization of material applications through advanced concepts. Since China's material industry started late, although it has been struggling for many years, the overall level still has gaps with advanced countries, especially the core key material technology restricts the development of many major strategic areas, and rapidly upgrades the core technology level and industry in the field of materials. Manufacturing capacity is the inherent need for the development of the materials industry.
“Materials Engineering of Materials” provides tremendous opportunities for materials science. Among them, high-throughput integrated computing and big data are one of the core contents of “material genetic engineering”. The process of innovation drives the discovery of new materials and accelerates the realization of concepts and products. It is of great significance.
It is also known that on May 31, 2017, the five cross-research platform projects of Beijing Huairou Science City have all started construction. Huairou Science City includes the Materials Genomics Research Platform project.
The Material Genomics Research Platform Project is one of the major scientific research projects in the interdisciplinary cross-disciplinary research platform of Huairou Science City. It will build China's first, the world's largest and most complete material genomics research platform, and will use China's advanced quantum materials as the Break through, quickly and directly produce original basic research results.
Wang Weihua revealed that this platform was jointly built by Beijing and the Chinese Academy of Sciences, mainly undertaken by the physics department, with a construction area of 40,000 square meters, 120 permanent personnel and 250 graduate students.
Wang Weihua said that he hopes to agglutinate talents through the “material genetic engineering platform” and accelerate the research of core technologies, especially key materials. The platform will train high-end talents in materials science artificial intelligence. Therefore, the “Material Genetic Engineering Platform” will also be a world-class platform for the development of new materials.
Wang Weihua also said that the Material Genome Platform will recruit high-end talents in artificial intelligence, computer and materials research and development in the world's best materials field. It is hoped that through the material genetic engineering platform, the material science research and development will be completed to the full extent of the pilot to industrialization. The chain can promote its development quickly and efficiently.
“Material genomics platforms include big data, high-throughput computing, and artificial intelligence.” Academician Wang Weihua introduced the use of high-throughput computing, machine learning and other artificial intelligence methods to narrow down and lock the range of materials that you want to find, and then use high-throughput preparation and testing to quickly screen materials, which can greatly reduce material development costs and cycles. And will make important breakthroughs in key materials.
“A new material is developed from the laboratory to large-scale use, and the cycle usually takes 10-20 years.” Academician Wang Weihua said that the integration of modern information technology, big data, artificial intelligence, high-throughput computing, coupled with high-throughput material preparation and testing, to the new model of new material research, rational design, efficient experimentation and data technology depth Convergence, making full use of artificial intelligence to accelerate the research and development of materials, is expected to reduce the material development cycle by half.
Of course, amorphous alloy materials have certainly become one of the focuses of the platform research, and will certainly play a huge role in the application of amorphous alloy materials in a wider range.
