Many thermodynamic calculations and engineering applications require the temperature-dependent heat capacity (Cp) of a material to be known a priori. First-principle calculations of heat capacities can stand in place of experimental information, but these calculations are costly and expensive. Here, we report on our creation of a high-throughput supervised machine learning-based tool to predict temperature-dependent heat capacity. We demonstrate that material heat capacity can be correlated to…

Can Machine Learning Find Extraordinary Materials?
One of the most common criticisms of machine learning is an assumed inability for models to extrapolate, i.e. to identify extraordinary materials with properties beyond those present in the training
Supervised deep learning prediction of the formation enthalpy of the full set of configurations in complex phases: the σ-phase as an example
This manuscript demonstrates how ML can be used to predict several properties in solid-state chemistry, in particular the heat of formation of a given complex crystallographic phase, and shows that neural network regression algorithms provide a significant improvement in accuracy of the predicted output compared to traditional regression techniques.
