Bosch uses NLP to develop a materials science knowledge base to enable researchers to find information faster

January 05, 2021 | Case Study

When developing new products and materials, researchers and materials engineers must be able to find, analyze, and synthesize information on existing materials in a timely manner. This task has become increasingly difficult due to the growing volume of research papers, patents, and other documents containing chemicals and materials information published on a near-daily basis. Engineers and researchers at Bosch, which has product lines in automotive, consumer goods, energy, and building technology, face this challenge regularly, requiring information on thousands of materials available for production purposes.
