Workshop overview

In March of 2017, Toyota Research Institute announced $35 million in funding to several universities and research institutions to apply artificial intelligence to the hunt for new materials. The applications of interest are energy materials for next-generation mobility. This funding  supports over 125 professors, graduate students, postdocs and research scientists. This external research program plus our dedicated TRI research and engineering staff comprises the Accelerated Materials Design & Discovery (AMDD) program.  

On May 30 & 31, 2018, the AMDD group will hold its first annual meeting for all participants in the consortium. This two-day workshop will be held in the San Francisco area.  The first day, May 30th, will be for Principal Investigators only. The second day, May 31st, will be a technical conference where all AMDD program participants will be encouraged to share their research with the consortium.
