Chemistry Department Colloquium

"Data Science & Machine Learning Approaches to Catalysis"

Presented by Dr. John Kitchin, Carnegie Mellon University

Wednesday, September 13, 2023, 11:00 am — Room 300 - Chemistry Bldg. 555

Data science and machine learning (DS/ML) are changing the way many people approach catalysis research, ranging from new design of experiment approaches, new methods in simulation, even new ways of interacting with scientific literature. It is challenging today to even keep up with new work as it changes so quickly. In this talk, I will provide an overview of several ways we have incorporated DS/ML into our catalysis research, including experimental and computational research projects. I will share a case study in integrating DS/ML into a high-throughput experimental study in hydrogen production. I will showcase a state of the art large catalysis machine-learned model from the Open Catalyst project. Finally, I will show how we have used concepts from DS/ML to develop new solutions to problems in chemical engineering. The takeaway messages from this talk will be that DS/ML is here to stay, and worth learning about. It is not a panacea solution though, with remaining challenges to address including educational, technical and communication challenges.
