With the advancement of technology researchers identifies the combination of two complementary tools to employ a supervised learning strategy for the efficient screening of high entropy alloys and identify important materials that drives the growth of data science domain. This tool was validated by comparing both predicated hardness. These methods were validated by comparing various predicated hardness with alloy fabricated in laboratory using arc-melting and identifying alloys with very high measured hardness of material. This method is also capable to identify issue associated with alloy having if there will be any other necessary property. Continuous technological innovation in industrial sectors have increased the opportunities for the development of new materials for variety of new applications. However, the engineering of such materials with the desired properties is expensive, time consuming, and labor- intensive in nature. Also, with manual experiment, it is difficult to engineer material with exact physical property. Thus, material designers can now generate informative hypotheses to reveal the best material engineering process through data driven science and technology. Most of the scientist are now adopting machine learning solutions to build a effective models for establishing relationships between processes, materials, and properties. Machine learning based data-centric material informatics can be more useful to identify material properties that are hard to measure or compute by conventional methods.
