The demand for lithium-ion batteries is growing rapidly, but the slow growth of energy density and battery safety are still two major problems restricting the development of the industry. The reason behind this is the lack of a set of multi-scale full-process battery simulation tools connected from battery material screening to battery cell design, from R&D to manufacturing.
Hong Kong Quantum AI Lab, also known as The Centre of Machine Learning for Energy Materials and Devices, was established through a collaboration between HKU and Caltech. It is funded by InnoHK, the world-class ten-billion I&T initiative of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government. The centre is dedicated to making breakthroughs in the fundamental research area of AI + quantum chemistry and applying the latest scientific discoveries and technological advancements to facilitate the transformation and development of microelectronics, new energy, materials industries through digital technology.
Our areas of technological research and development include the AI + quantum chemistry simulation platform for discovering new materials, Li-ion battery design and simulation tools, battery health and life diagnosis tools, solid-state batteries, new catalysts, OLED emitter materials, robotic technologies, and more.
