We are pleased to announce Dr. Jost Göttert and Dr. Christian Schmitz from the HIT Institute of Surface Technology based at the Hochschule Niederrhein in Krefeld.

Our guests will present their take on digital chemistry relating to high throughput experimentation and machine learning. Their solutions accelerate and improve the development of coating formulations.

They will illustrate their “iHIT Solution Engine” process with practical examples, and discuss how to use the Digital Model Information.

This is the third webinar in our series “Digital Transformation of R&D and QC Labs”.


To solve some of humanities largest problems such as climate change, we need to discover molecules and materials faster than ever.

To achieve that, and together with other groups around the world, we have proposed the idea of the “self-driving laboratory”, a platform that incorporates computation, artificial intelligence, orchestration and optimization systems and chemical automation platforms to integrate materials discovery under one roof.

In this talk, I will describe a DARPA-funded collaboration called MADNESS that involves the groups of Lee Cronin, Jason Hein, Bartosz Grzybowski, Marty Burke and our group at UofT that aims to create self-driving laboratories for the discovery of organic molecules for optoelectronic applications. I will describe the project alongside recent progress in AI for chemistry.”

This is the fourth webinar in Chemspeed’s series about “Digital Transformation of R&D and QC Labs.
