With today’s new generation of cloud HPC and AI tools, computational chemistry and materials science is scaling and accelerating R&D efforts that could address some of our world’s toughest challenges. While there are few concrete examples of computational discoveries that have been validated experimentally, a shift is finally starting to take place.

In this special session, Microsoft will share some of its latest updates, including joining forces with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory to accelerate scientific discovery for energy storage solutions. Together, the teams have been able to discover and synthesize a new material for resource-efficient batteries in less than nine months. We will explore how advancements in HPC and AI are accelerating the next frontier of scientific breakthroughs, in turn compressing the next 250 years of chemistry into the next 25.
