The artificial intelligence (AI) seems playing a significant role in reshaping various industries. Some researchers think AI will also be a key force in developing future batteries. There's a wide range of tools under the AI umbrella that will help make better batteries for different applications. By using the power of AI to discover new materials, optimize designs & manufacturing processes, and improve the performance and sustainability of batteries, the researchers told it can help to drive the global transition towards a cleaner and more efficient energy future.

How do you think the role of AI in the development of new batteries? Welcome to comment below!

It currently is playing a role in a few companies. How? My understanding is testing many different material combinations to find a desirable compromise of capacity, density, cycle life and safety. Calling it artificial intelligence is marketing speak, though.

Like self driving cars, the goalposts keep getting moved.

Discussion of AI reveals more about the mindset of the person talking about it than anything 'world changing'.

Indeed. These can range from more algorithmic processes such as @KITROBASKIN mentions that predict better chemical compounds to experiment with among innumerous possibilities to things more like the AI we hear about today that can analyze and compare research papers then suggest avenues for improvement against established data points.
