“Materials Informatics 101: Data Science Literacy”

September 18-19, 2019
GT Manufacturing Institute Auditorium | 813 Ferst Drive, N.W | Atlanta, GA 30332


This workshop, co-developed by Citrine Informatics1 and the Institute for Materials at Georgia Tech2, seeks to provide basic skills in data analysis and machine learning for materials scientists and engineers. The pace of the course is such that students from academia and industry with minimal experience in computation will be able to benefit.

Day 1 of the course will introduce a variety of open-source web tools for extracting and analyzing materials data. Day 2 of the course will introduce programmatic techniques for materials data analysis. The goal is to introduce students in materials-related disciplines to these emerging techniques that are being increasingly utilized in academic and industrial materials research.

The cost of this 2 day workshop is $25.00. Cost includes lunches.


1]The Citrine Informatics platform ingests and analyzes large-scale technical data sets on materials, chemicals, and devices to streamline R&D, manufacturing, and supply chain operations for any organization that produces a physical product. Typical system users are scientists and engineers at large manufacturing and materials companies, as well as researchers at universities and government labs. Citrine was recently given the Best AI-based solution for Manufacturing award from AI Breakthrough, an independent organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies, and products in the global Artificial Intelligence (AI) market today. (Forbes 8/26/2018)

2] The Institute for Materials represents and supports more than 200 materials related faculty members with diverse expertise in a wide range of disciplines such as materials science and engineering, chemistry and biochemistry, chemical and biomolecular engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, biology, computing and information sciences, and others. Georgia Tech’s ability to combine its strengths in engineering, the sciences, and computing has solidified its reputation as a leader in materials research. Faculty from the Georgia Tech Research Institute are also key contributors to Georgia Tech’s cross-cutting materials research.
