HACARUS To Announce Material Development Algorithm At The 69th JSAP Spring Meeting 2022

In collaboration with the Tokyo Institute of Technology, HACARUS will announce its Design of Experiment Algorithm on March 24, 2022.

March 10th, 2022 – Kyoto, Japan – HACARUS INC, the leading provider of big insights from small data, today announced that it will participate in the 69th JSAP Spring Meeting to unveil its material development algorithm together with Professor Taro Hitosugi and Assistant Professor Ryo Nakayama from the Tokyo Institute of Technology. 

“Lately, AI has been attracting attention in the material development world as a means of improving efficiency. Together with The Tokyo Institute of Technology, our algorithm, which utilizes sparse modeling technology, we have discovered a way to greatly improve the efficiency even further. We want to share this innovative technology with as many people as possible so we are excited about this opportunity,” said Kenshin Fujiwara, CEO at HACARUS.  

By utilizing HACARUS’ sparse modeling techniques, the Design of Experiment Algorithm provides three distinct advantages over conventional methods. First, the innovative model can reduce the time and costs of model training by cutting the number of experiments by over 50%. The algorithm can also open the possibility of new discoveries by expanding the search space of experiments. Finally, it can serve as the bridge that gaps AI analysis and expert judgments to improve the overall quality of material development. 

As one of the 20 keynote lectures selected from over 4000 candidates, speakers from HACARUS and the Tokyo Institute of Technology will showcase the Design of Experiment Algorithm, explain how it works, and its implications in a variety of scientific fields such as of material decarbonization of rare materials.
