DST-IIT Kanpur center was launched at the MI Annual Gathering session on 4th April 2022 in the presence of Honable Minister of Science and Technology Dr Jitendra Singh. The objective of this platform is to design materials for energy harvesting by employing quantum mechanics-enabled atomistic simulations, AI & ML algorithms and, automation. The network of researchers engaged in the platform comprises scientists from 13 elite institutions. This Material Acceleration Platform set up by the Department of Science and Technology (DST) would leverage emerging capabilities in next-generation computing, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), and robotics to accelerate the pace of materials discovery up to 10 times faster.
