Computing power has come a long way since we put a man on the moon. Whereas a smartphone is many times more powerful than computers were in 1969, new computers rival the human brain in scientific processes.  This talk will discuss applications of new computing technologies to shorten the time required to develop new materials, will be an opportunity to hear about forthcoming ICDS/MRI seed funding, and will include an invitation to join more in-depth discussions on this topic at Materials Day.
