New case study: Improving steel properties at OCAS
The Alchemite™ machine learning software has been applied at leading steel research centre, OCAS (a joint venture involving ArcelorMittal) to extract hidden information from microstructural images and develop models with good predictive power, going from processing and/or microstructure to properties. Lode Duprez, chief scientific officer, commented “The project has validated the use of the deep learning method for real–world steels applications and provided us with insights that can help us to improve steel properties and focus valuable experimental resources more efficiently.”
Upcoming webinar - machine learning for polymers
Optimising the chemistry, blending, and formulation of polymers can have profound impacts on the performance, economics, and sustainability of an array of products and industrial processes. Yet such vital development often relies on trial-and-error, intuition, and costly, time consuming experimental programs. Find out how innovative machine learning can enable a data-driven approach, focusing experiment more effectively and providing scientists and chemical engineers with quality insights to guide development of product concepts and to enable more efficient, reliable processes.
Recorded webinar - Towards net zero with machine learning
Did you miss this week’s webinar on how machine learning can make products and processes more efficient, reducing waste, energy usage, and resource consumption? You can watch the recording, including case study insights from the recent ‘Build UK India‘ project focused on minimising wastage in an industrial manufacturing process for aerospace.
Hear Intellegens speak and meet us at CHEM UK 2022
Intellegens is exhibiting at the upcoming CHEMUK 2022 exhibition and our CTO Dr Gareth Conduit will speak in the conference sessions. We’ll be showing how machine learning can enable the design of formulations, materials, and chemicals, and help to develop and optimise chemical processes. Connect with us in advance to arrange a meeting – or find us on stand D49 in the exhibition.
Blog: 5 questions that might matter more than 'is it accurate?'
As machine learning obsessives, you might expect us to always pursue the perfect model: the one that takes a new set of system inputs and predicts their outputs correctly every time. In fact, although model accuracy matters, in real-world R&D it is possible to focus on it too much. In this month’s blog, we discuss some of the questions that might actually be more important than ‘is it accurate?’
Application focus - Plastics and elastomers
Are you developing new polymeric materials? Or improving performance and cost for plastics or elastomers? You might be researching new packaging options or focusing on sustainability goals: incorporating recycled material, using biopolymers, or decreasing energy usage. Perhaps you want to eliminate additives made obsolete by new regulations. We’re seeing growing interest in applying machine learning to such challenges. Get in touch to arrange a demonstration tailored to your application.
