AI-assisted Design for Novel Water Filtration Systems

AI helps researchers improve water filters

The team rearranged the materials in different ways to allow water through.

According to a recent study in the journal ACS Central Science, artificial intelligence (AI) can be used to create water filter materials. It also speeds up the manufacturing process.

Create a novel system of water purification

Filter systems are found in many different items, from household faucet attachments to industrial-sized systems. Current membranes are unable to filter water that is very dirty or contains neutral molecules such as boric, an insecticide applied to crop plants.
