The theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages.

Can artificial intelligence create the next wonder material?

    $\begingroup$ What do you mean by "wonder material"? I don't think that this expression is very common, so you should at least briefly describe it. $\endgroup$ – nbro Apr 22 '19 at 19:52

Artificial intelligence has already gotten to the point where machines are as good as humans at many tasks, and even outperform humans at several more. The general goal of AI is to improve machines to be as good or better than humans at a wide variety of tasks. There's no theoretical reason why materials science is any different; we may well someday have a machine that can out-think all human materials scientists. There's not much reason to suppose that humans will always reign supreme at any particular task (especially objective ones like science), so yes, it's entirely possible that the next "wonder material" will be invented by a machine.

The wonder materials are made by physical engines what are generally not part of AI. But i have some weird idea about AI that it could be capable even fully do scientific research process, including all management of research, not just island calculations, as those are getting more complicated for humans.

Some "wonder materials" may themselves be a limited form of AI--specifically nanotechnology/nanomachines that make local decisions, based on stimulus and their environment, related to their function!

See: Molecular Machine

This could be a very good thing, in the sense of utility fog and smartdust, or a very bad thing in the sense of "grey goo".
