About DeepMatter Group plc

DeepMatter's long term strategy is to integrate chemistry with technology, thereby enabling a greater use of artificial intelligence and reaching a point where chemicals can be autonomously synthesised through robotics. It has developed and is commercialising data rich platform technologies, including software and laboratory hardware, focused on applications to improve R&D productivity and discovery using Machine Learning / Artificial Intelligence.

DeepMatter's technologies allow chemistry experiments to be accurately and systematically recorded, coded and entered into a shared data cloud. They are designed to enable chemists to work together effectively; sharing the details of their experiments from anywhere and in real-time, so that work is not needlessly duplicated, time and money wasted, and ultimately so new discoveries may be made faster.
