Title: Towards net zero with machine learning: battery and materials development
Combatting climate change requires the development of products that enable reduced emissions and minimise resource consumption. Two important examples are batteries, which are vital to the roll-out of electric vehicles, and materials, where aims include light weighting, reducing embedded energy, and using more recycled content. Both pose complex formulation, process, and system design problems and are currently addressed with approaches that rely heavily on costly, time-consuming experimentation. Machine learning should help, enabling development teams to learn from existing data to optimise product design and processing and to guide experiment so that far fewer tests are required. But machine learning methods often struggle with real-world, sparse and noisy experimental or process data. In this talk, we’ll present a deep learning technology, originally developed at the University of Cambridge and now commercialised at Intellegens, that can overcome this difficulty and that has been designed specifically for use in materials, chemicals, and manufacturing. We’ll share case studies of its application in battery formulation and manufacturing, battery pack design, and the development of new alloys and additive manufacturing materials and processes.
