The AI model was utilized to calculate the hardness of the carbon species generated using XtalOpt – an open -source algorithm for crystal structure prediction developed in one of the participating research labs. The AI model for assessing hardness was trained utilizing the Automatic FLOW (AFLOW) database, a library of materials with properties that have been determined.
This procedure accelerates the material development significantly. The calculations still take significant amount of time, however, once the AI model is trained, the hardness will be predicted very fast and with reasonable accuracy.

Traditional oil analysis, also called oil condition monitoring (OCM) analyzes samples for abnormal wear, condition of the fluid, and presence of contaminates. The presence of any of these issues indicates that action needs to be […]
When someone hears the word diamond the first thing that comes to mind is often something related to jewelry. However, diamonds are actually mostly used for industrial purposes: 75% of the world’s supply of natural […]
