New Theory Promises to Reshape How We Think About Polymer Superstructures


WHY IMPORTANT

Polymer scientists at the University of Massachusetts Amherst recently announced in the journal Nature Communications that they have solved a longstanding mystery surrounding a nanoscale structure, formed by collections of molecules, called a double-gyroid. This shape is one of the most desirable for materials scientists, and has a wide range of applications; but, until now, a predictable understanding of how these shapes form has eluded researchers.

WHAT IS Machine learning is the field of software engineering which makes the machine fit for learning all alone without being expressly customized.

WHY IMPORTANT
These things mean it’s feasible to rapidly and consequently produce models that can dissect greater, more intricate information and convey quicker, more exact outcomes – even on an exceptionally huge scope.
