Material databases such as NOMAD give researchers the ability to work with millions of material simulation results . However, it is typically unclear to which extent calculations performed with different numerical settings and computer codes can be trusted and related to each other. This project presents statistical learning strategies to model errors in energies for two all-electron DFT codes, FHI-aims and exciting, for different basis-set sizes and k-point densities. Specifically, we use mutual information scores to select features that are able to capture the energy-per-atom errors. With respect to several metrics, random forest regression on the selected features shows the most promising results. This work lays the foundation for estimating errors in DFT data in NOMAD and helps to save computing resources by a priori predicting the DFT simulation settings required to achieve a desired level of precision. This also enables us to estimate the basis-set and k-point converged results of not fully converged calculations.
