The joint automated repository for various integrated simulations (JARVIS) infrastructure at the National Institute of Standards and Technology is a large-scale collection of curated datasets and tools with more than 80 000 materials and millions of properties. JARVIS uses a combination of electronic structure, artificial intelligence, advanced computation, and experimental methods to accelerate materials design. Here, we report some of the new features that were recently included in the infrastructure, such as (1) doubling the number of materials in the database since its first release, (2) including more accurate electronic structure methods such as quantum Monte Carlo, (3) including graph neural network-based materials design, (4) development of unified force- field, (5) development of a universal tight-binding model, (6) addition of computer-vision tools for advanced microscopy applications, (7) development of a natural language processing tool for text-generation and analysis, (8) debuting a large-scale benchmarking endeavor, (9) including quantum computing algorithms for solids, (10) integrating several experimental datasets, and (11) staging several community engagement and outreach events. New classes of materials, properties, and workflows added to the database include superconductors, two- dimensional (2D) magnets, magnetic topological materials, metal-organic frameworks, defects, and interface systems. The rich and reliable datasets, tools, documentation, and tutorials make JARVIS a unique platform for modern materials design. JARVIS ensures the openness of data and tools to enhance reproducibility and transparency and to promote a healthy and collaborative scientific environment.
