Kebotix: reinventing the materials industry with AI

Following the announcement that Kebotix has partnered with SCM to advance materials innovation, we explore how it utilises AI to realise its mission

By utilising advanced artificial intelligence (AI), Kebotix transforms the discovery and development of breakthrough chemicals and materials for the 21st century. 

The company automates scientific methods using a proprietary closed-loop R&D process to predict and produce new chemistries in a self-driving lab. 

Using the most advanced AI, machine learning (ML) and lab automation, Kebotix is accelerating towards a new age of innovation, speeding to market new materials that revolutionise products, companies and entire industries.

In doing so, the company aim to reduce the manufacturing of hazardous products and build a more sustainable world.

Kebotix’s team is made up of world-class scientists as well as entrepreneurs united under the same drive to tackle greater challenges and strive for scientific innovation.

Strategically partnering with SCM

Its recent strategic partnership with SCM will enable innovative customers to drastically scale up and computationally screen far greater quantities of molecules and materials than via today's laborious and costly norm of trial and error.

Commenting on this new partnership Dr Christoph Kreisbeck, Kebotix’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: "Massive accelerations can be achieved by integrating SCM's four-decade-long history of making and supporting atomistic modelling software with Kebotix's proven advanced machine learning techniques.” 

“Using the ML methods that greatly attributed to Kebotix earning "Technology Pioneer" status by the World Economic Forum, new structures can be proposed to explore an even larger part of the chemical space, potentially leading to exciting new solutions that are commercially viable and meet global sustainability goals," he added.

Kebotix: disrupting a 35-year-old industry

The company has also remarked that it is on the cusp of a “promising” organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) breakthrough saying “Kebotix is primed to disrupt a 35-year-old industry on the strength of its AI-powered suite prediction capabilities.”

By utilising its proprietary closed-loop innovation platform that accelerates discovery, Kebotix has built a pipeline for the smart design of OLED emitter molecules. This pipeline leverages the ability of AI to learn chemical intuition by analysing huge amounts of data simultaneously and synergistically with the oversight of science experts.

Adding to this, the company has also partnered with Mitsubishi Chemical to expand its long-standing effort to solve environmental problems with greener chemistry while still providing a diverse range of products.
