Artificial Intelligence (AI) or ‘pervasive computing’ is the next foundational technology revolution that will reshape how we work, live, and organize our societies. Citrine is helping architect this world of the future by creating standards, protocols, and AI engines for materials discovery and the manufacturing of those materials. Citrine’s primary goal is to help our customers reduce their materials discovery, costs, and development schedules by 50%. To date, we have used our Artificial Intelligence engines to achieve this result or better for several government and commercial customers. Our AI tools sort through our databases to radically narrow our customer’s research areas to make sure that they don’t waste time and money pursuing less promising areas. Citrine does not seek to own our customer’s data or discoveries. Rather Citrine offers a robust Materials Informatics (MI) platform and AI analytical tools that help our customer make new breakthroughs in half the time at have the costs. Our customer’s data and discoveries always remain their intellectual property. Citrine is successful when our customers are successful and create new and novel materials, products, and solutions. To support our platform, Citrine is building the world’s largest materials data platform. Today, our system has over 18,000 ,000 material-property pairs. There are numerous public and private materials data repositories within the Citrine platform. Citrine provides customer specific research domains for our customers which allows them to house their proprietary data and combine their private databases with Citrine’s larger materials data platform. Citrine’s platform encompasses data for a wide range of public and private repositories and pulls them together into a standard and readily searchable format for researchers, manufacturers, and designers. The database is continuously growing with support from our academic, government, and corporate partners around the world. Today, any researcher, in the US or overseas, can use this database to find information about their field and materials that have been studied. Citrine allows our customers to rapidly sort through millions of data points to make sure they are focusing on the right challenges and improving their time to discovery. At Citrine we are passionate about driving improvements and development of AI tools to improve industrial efficiency, output, and growth for our users. We believe that our suite of tools are fundamental enablers that will drive the next industrial revolution often referred to as ‘Industry 4.0’, ‘the 4th Industrial Revolution’ or the ‘The Second Machine Age’. Citrine is uniquely focused on challenges related to materials discovery, design, and manufacturing. Good products start with great materials. Citrines brings together material science, design, manufacturing know-how, and computation to create new insights and new value for our customers. Ultimately, Citrine believes in the power of our products to ‘do good’ for society by creating new, more environmentally friendly products and new industrial disciplines that will promote new job creation across both new and traditional industries.
