Materials informatics applies data science and AI methods to better understand the use, selection, development, and discovery of materials. As an emerging technology with strong momentum, it is used across the value chain, from upstream materials and chemicals developers to downstream product manufacturers. In this webinar, we will provide an overview of the key players and their activities in this space. Specifically, we will discuss different application areas, data challenges, and recent developments from both startups and large corporations. Finally, we will propose strategies to engage with materials informatics and will end by answering why clients across the value chain should overcome the data-sharing fear.
