Well, it is a field of study to improve the understanding, use, selection, development and discovery of materials. The field makes use of the information(data) that we have about existing materials obtained through experiments and/or simulations by exploiting the vast improvements that we have achieved in the field of data processing by using state of the art algorithms popular in the field of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep Learning.
Some of the good resources in the field are:
