Constructing a materials discovery platform requires concerted efforts between multiple domains, including theory, experiments and the computational methods for synergetic exchanges in between [1]. Firstly, these exchanges require domain-informed, compact data representations and metrics to facilitate the high-throughput methodology and unite disparate fields associated with materials science. I discuss corresponding examples from electronic structure [2] and crystal structure [3] data. Secondly, existing materials characterization methods are not designed to scale up to macroscopic samples and batches, and the correspondence between multimodal measurements are often not exact [4], I discuss these existing limitations and propose solutions by co-designing experimental and computational workflows [5].
