- The computers use machine-learning to help scientists narrow their focus when combining atoms to create something entirely new.
- Scientists from the University of Liverpool have taught computers to sift through the infinite possibilities of atoms in search of new materials.
- This new research will allow scientists to input previously known materials into a machine learning algorithm so that the computer can then predict what similar atomic pairings will produce.
