HEMI Partners with U.S. Army for Artificial Intelligence for Materials Research

Dec 3, 2020 | No Comments | By Vivian Sun

The Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (HEMI) at Johns Hopkins University has signed a new cooperative agreement with the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (DEVCOM) Army Research Laboratory (ARL).

The agreement, titled “Materials in Extreme Dynamic Environments Plus (MEDE+)” seeks to use artificial intelligence and machine learning to further materials research and development. HEMI and ARL will collaborate on four initial projects, all focused on artificial intelligence for materials (AI-M):

  1. Project 1: Using artificial intelligence to accelerate the iterative materials design cycle by high-throughput microstructural characterization and rapid processing
  2. Project 2: Acoustic signature and reconstruction of defect avalanches in metals
  3. Project 3: Real-time monitoring of laser-material interactions
  4. Project 4: Toward self-repairing devices: Data-directed design of active, hierarchical colloidal assembly and reconfiguration

K.T. Ramesh, Director of HEMI and professor in JHU’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, and Dr. Sikhanda Satapathy, from the DEVCOM ARL, will lead the research activities.
