Boffins deem Google DeepMind's material discoveries shallow

This article from The Register discusses criticisms of Google DeepMind’s claims about its AI’s role in discovering new materials. Researchers from UC Santa Barbara argue that the AI’s findings, mostly about crystalline inorganic compounds, are not as groundbreaking or useful as suggested. They contend that the materials identified lack novelty and practical utility. DeepMind, however, defends their research, emphasizing that their AI has significantly expanded the pool of known materials and that many of these have been synthesized, validating their predictions.
