The transition to a carbon neutral economy is a pressing issue in the work to achieve a sustainable society. As a field, chemistry will play a significant role toward that end, notably in the development of more environmentally friendly materials.
Hitachi High-Tech Solutions Chemicals Informatics is a search service that uses AI to find necessary compounds for materials development. Using a database with over 100 million entries, it enables users to perform comprehensive searches by supporting them in finding a compound that suits their application.
AI handles a part of the work that used to be heavily dependent on experienced chemists in order to enable major reductions in R&D time, labor and costs. The service will play a role in providing society with new materials as swiftly as possible.
