Machine learning and data-driven techniques are playing a big role in the research, development and discovery of new materials leading to faster conclusions and significant cost savings for materials researchers and manufacturers.

In the Open Data Challenge, teams curate or develop their own materials dataset and apply materials informatics to that dataset to learn something new.

Join us in The Hub Monday or Wednesday afternoon to learn more about this exciting new competition!
