Quantum chemistry aims to predict the chemical and physical properties of molecules based on the arrangement of their atoms in space, without time-consuming and resource-intensive laboratory experiments. This can be achieved by solving the Schrödinger equation, but in practice this is too difficult. A team of scientists from Freie Universität Berlin has developed a deep learning algorithm that can achieve a combination of precision and computational efficiency. The professor leading the research believes the approach may have a significant impact on the future of quantum chemistry.
