Title: A data ecosystem to support machine learning in materials science

Abstract

Facilitating the application of machine learning to materials science problems requires enhancing the data ecosystem to enable discovery and collection of data from many sources, automated dissemination of new data across the ecosystem, and the connecting of data with materialsspecific machine learning models. Here, we present two projects, the Materials Data Facility (MDF) and the Data and Learning Hub for Science (DLHub), that address these needs. We use examples to show how MDF and DLHub capabilities can be leveraged to link data with machine learning models and how users can access those capabilities through web and programmatic interfaces.

Figure 1 Figure 1: Materials Data Facility (MDF) overview. (1) Users submit data to MDF by specifying the data’s location, title, authors, and more. (2) MDF Connect collects data from the specified location and applies materials-specific extractors and transformations to enrich the data. (3) Processed data and metadata are dispatched to anymore » supported community data service(s) specified by the user. Other users can then discover, interact with, and access the data using any of those services.« less
