From Stone to Silicon age, the seasons of human civilization are named after materials. The concurrent emergence of a new powerful formulation of the equations of quantum mechanics and of clever algorithms to implement them on computers able to perform one billion-billion operations per second is now igniting a paradigm shift in materials research. The complex properties of the materials that define present and future technologies can thus be not only understood, but even designed. Some of the leading researchers in the field will share their vision of computer-aided materials discovery.
