Google DeepMind researchers used GNoME, a deep learning-based tool, to predict the structure of more than 2 million new materials. This is a breakthrough with potential. It affects various sectors such as renewable energy and computing.
More than 700 potential materials have been realized and are currently in laboratory testing. The expectation is that this latest innovation provides a significant boost to the identification of new materials needed for fields such as energy storage, solar cells and superconducting chips.
GNoME represents an advancement of Google DeepMind, an organization known for its remarkable achievements. The team has previously developed AlphaFold, which accurately predicts protein structure, AlphaMissense, a vital tool in screening for genetic diseases, and GraphCast, a high-precision weather forecasting system.
How does GNoME work?
GNOME Revolutionizing materials discovery. Unlike the traditional approach, which relies on combining elements from the periodic table and has efficiency limitations, this technology completely transforms the process.
GNoME has the ability to create over a billion structures Predicts the stability of new materials independently of existing structures.
From a set of 2.2 million materials considered likely to be stable, Google DeepMind selected the 381,000 most likely to be stable and included them in the ISCD, increasing the number of materials considered stable by a factor of ten.
To confirm these predictions Google DeepMind collaborated with external researchers and was successful in synthesizing 736 materials predicted to be stable by GNoMEconfirming its true stability.
A paper published in the journal Nature reveals that the findings were adopted by researchers at the University of California at Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. They have already incorporated these into their experiments to develop new materials. This practical application strengthens the impact and relevance of discoveries in the scientific community.
