Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have found a way Explore the material from the insideJust by looking at its surface. By using artificial intelligence and deep learning, researchers have developed an innovative system that can make reliable predictions based on external data. This is a breakthrough that could revolutionize many areas.

Deep learning – a universal tool

The most interesting thing is that this method has wide applications in various engineering fields, such as solid-state mechanics, fluid dynamics or the study of magnetic fields, for example in fusion reactors. This means that this universal technology can be used to study different materials and in different scientific disciplines.

How it works? Deep learning in action

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a way to train an artificial intelligence model using massive amounts of data about surface measurements and their associated intrinsic properties. These data range from monolithic to composite materials, which are increasingly used in modern structures.

In this way, researchers will be able to better understand the behavior of complex materials, such as biological tissues, which until now have been difficult to analyze without invasive research. It will be possible for example to diagnose diseases or growth. This opens the door to new, more accurate and less invasive diagnostic methods that could significantly impact the quality of medical care.

One practical application of this method may be aircraft inspection. Currently, examination of some representative areas of these structures requires the use of expensive and time-consuming methods, such as X-rays. The new approach can significantly reduce costs and shorten testing time, which will allow engineers to make faster decisions about possible repairs or modifications.

Initially, the method should mainly be used in laboratory research, for example in testing materials used in soft robots. Thanks to new technology, scientists will be able to predict what’s going on inside them, which could lead to designing better handles or vehicles.
