Critical advancements in energy, transportation, and virtually every other field are enabled by the discovery of new materials with innovative and unique properties. Unfortunately, in the current development paradigm, materials are designed in a trial-and-error approach where they are iteratively generated and tested against their application requirements in an expensive and time-consuming process. Ideally, materials would be designed for their application, and different ingredients of materials science could be combined to produce the desired functionality and properties in aggregate. However, this requires a rigorous understanding of structure-property relationships across many different materials systems, which currently does not exist.
