Researchers from Harvard University, MIT and Samsung developed a large-scale computer-driven material screening process that incorporates theoretical and experimental chemistry, machine learning and cheminformatics, with an aim to quickly identify new OLED molecules.

The so-called Molecular Space Shuttle system was used to design more than 1,000 new high-performance blue-light emitting molecules. It seems that there is still a lot of work ahead to find the best new candidates and actually test these molecules, but this may be a promising new direction in OLED molecule research.
