Machine learning is an important branch in the field of artificial intelligence. Its basic idea is to build a statistical model based on data and use the model to analyze and predict the data. With the rapid development of big data technology, data-driven machine learning algorithms have begun to flourish in various fields of materials research.


Recently, a research team led by Prof. Wang Jun from the Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) proposed a recognition method to distinguish

If a person in the developing world severely fractures a limb, they face an impossible choice. An improperly healed fracture could mean a lifetime of pain, but lengthy healing time in traction or a bulky cast results in immediate financial hardship.

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) machine learning scientists leaped into action when they learned they
