What is the NOMAD Artificial-Intelligence Toolkit?
The NOMAD project revolutionizes materials design by offering an Artificial-Intelligence Toolkit. This powerful toolkit employs cutting-edge artificial-intelligence techniques like machine learning, compressed sensing, and data mining. It enables efficient sorting of vast material data, uncovering correlations, structures, trends, and anomalies. Scientists and engineers can identify materials suitable for specific applications and determine promising candidates for future studies.

An AI-toolkit to develop and share research into new materials
nomad ai toolkit Probably the biggest challenge in materials science is the discovery or design of new materials that exhibit exceptional performance for a desired function, or uncovering new properties of known materials. AI methods can be used to identify patterns and trends from big data to these ends. In materials science, these big data are a complex, hierarchical structure of experimental measures and theoretical estimates. Since 2014, the Novel Materials Discovery (NOMAD) Laboratory has established a materials data infrastructure, based on a large repository of materials data, and provides AI tools and training for researchers to freely access this resource, in compliance with the FAIR principles — that data should be findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (or recyclable).

The NOMAD Artificial-Intelligence Toolkit: turning materials-science data into knowledge and understanding
We present the Novel-Materials-Discovery (NOMAD) Artificial-Intelligence (AI) Toolkit, a web-browser-based infrastructure for the interactive AI-based analysis of materials-science findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR) data. The AI Toolkit readily operates on the FAIR data stored in the central server of the NOMAD Archive, the largest database of materials-science data worldwide, as well as locally stored, users' owned data. The NOMAD Oasis, a local, stand-alone server can be also used to run the AI Toolkit. By using Jupyter notebooks that run in a web-browser, the NOMAD data can be queried and accessed; data mining, machine learning, and other AI techniques can be then applied to analyze them. This infrastructure brings the concept of reproducibility in materials science to the next level, by allowing researchers to share not only the data contributing to their scientific publications, but also all the developed methods and analytics tools. Besides reproducing published results, users of the NOMAD AI toolkit can modify the Jupyter notebooks toward their own research work.
