Machine Learning-Driven Discovery of Solid State Electrolytes with Dr. Shreyas Honrao

August 31, 2023

Two major issues affecting Li-ion battery performance today are energy density and safety. All-solid-state batteries with a Li metal anode can address both of these issues — but the development of solid electrolytes that simultaneously possess high ionic conductivity and good chemical and electrochemical stability has proven to be a challenge.

To discuss this challenge, we welcome Aionics Senior Materials Informatics Scientist Dr. Shreyas Honrao to Aionics Fortnightly Episode 31. Dr. Honrao, who was previously a NASA scientist before joining Aionics, will discuss his work using tree-based machine learning methods for solid-state electrolyte discovery.

Furthermore, Dr. Honrao will explore how tree-based ensemble learning methods can be used to accurately learn relationships between crystal structures and corresponding thermodynamic and kinetic properties, with interpretability being a major focus.

This is sure to be an interesting discussion — don’t miss out!
