Webinar on materials and process technology with Lucideon
How can machine learning help to transform material and process development? Our guest speaker, Dr Richard Padbury of materials technology experts Lucideon, discusses this question at our next webinar. We’ll hear how machine learning is being applied to research applications including controlled release drug delivery, battery technology, ceramics, polymers, and complex formulations.
Tuesday, 9th November // 4pm UK time // 11am US Eastern.
Alchemite™ enhancements include more for ‘small data’
We’ll be reviewing recent and upcoming changes to the Alchemite™ software at next week’s Alchemite™ Focus Group. In the past month, continual enhancements to the Alchemite™ Analytics desktop software (pictured above) have included a new UI for creation of optimisation tasks. Meanwhile, a new ‘Suggest Initial’ capability in the underlying Alchemite™ Engine provides guidance on what initial experiments to do when you don’t yet have a dataset or model, for example at the start of a design process. This is another useful tool for dealing with the challenge of small amounts of data – see our recent white paper on this topic.
Talking Additive Manufacturing at Formnext
Intellegens CEO Ben Pellegrini will be speaking at next month’s Formnext event in Frankfurt, Germany, on ‘Machine Learning for Data-driven Additive Manufacturing’. If you’re attending Formnext, do join the session, or contact us to arrange a meeting with one of the Intellegens team at the event.
Session: AM4U stage (11.0-E72)
Timing: Thursday 18 Nov, 12.45.
Intellegens at Advanced Engineering
We’ll also be at the Advanced Engineering event in Birmingham, UK, next week. Catch Intellegens CTO Dr Gareth Conduit speaking on the sparse, noisy data problem in the Connected Manufacturing Forum. Gareth will also be presenting during the NATEP case studies session in the Aero Engineering Forum, where he’ll be discussing Project MEDAL on machine learning for Additive Manufacturing.
Case study: Alchemite™ applied to flavours and fragrances
A recent webinar hosted by Intellegens partner Optibrium featured work with IFF, a leading global provider of ingredients for the food and beverage, home and personal care, and health and wellness markets. The study applied the Intellegens Alchemite™ algorithm to impute missing data from sparse physicochemical and sensory datasets. It compared the results with conventional quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) methods. A key conclusion was that Alchemite™ more accurately predicts ‘activity cliffs’, where small changes in compound structure result in large changes in sensory properties. A pre-print of a paper describing this work is available.
