Optimization and Discovery for Complex Systems

ProtoLife's Predictive Design Technology™ (PDT) offers new, revolutionary capabilities for discovery and optimization.

Conventional design of experiments approaches are limited to exploration of just a few parameters; PDT has proven success for experimental spaces comprised of 10-20 parameters, where there are far too many experiments to explore exhaustively. PDT brings artificial intelligence to science, using advanced machine-learning techniques to build models that predict new experiments that have highest probability of yielding desired results. PDT opens the door to a new universe of results for all modern high-throughput and medium-throughput experimental platforms, by building a sequence of predictive models for successive generations of experiments.

Our methods are applicable in a wide range of applications, from exploration of complex biotech experiments, to discovery of new materials and catalysts, to optimization of production processes.

PDT for Biotechnology

State-of-the-art laboratories now have robotic tremendous high-throughput experimental capabilities, but that require sophisticated programming and control to realize their potential. When your experiments are complex (several experimental parameters with possible nonlinear interactions among them), the problem of experimental design becomes exponentially hard. ProtoLife's Predictive Design Technology will allow you to fully leverage your high-throughput experimental capabilities by coupling them to our machine-learning algorithms.

Materials Discovery

PDT for Materials Discovery

Whether producing plastics or catalysts, complex industrial chemistry often requires specification of several constituents and process parameters. When these parameters interact with each other in strong, nonlinear, unpredictable ways, high-throughput exploration is the primary route to discovery. Experiments can be quite expensive, so it is of paramount importance to leverage them in the discovery process, as allowed by ProtoLife's Predictive Design Technology.

Process Control

PDT for Process Control

Industrial process control typically requires a choice of many parameters that have a strong outcome on the product, and furthermore interact with each other strongly and in unpredictable ways. The quality of the end-product may be determined by more than one criterion. ProtoLife's multi-objective Predictive Design Technology allows you to realize the full potential of your process.

We are proud to present a web interface to PDT, simple to use, but extremely powerful, with parallel computations spawned in the cloud, working to predict the quickest path to your optimal target.
