Could AI enhance human creativity? In this article, we’ll explore the way neural networks could propose amazing association of words related to a problem. We trained a simple neural network with 5 million patents between 1976 and 2013, allowing to combine concepts and find new ideas.
This picture has been triggered by a Celebes macaque in Indonesia fascinated by the mirroring effect produced by the lens of a camera. An intellectual property legal dispute between the camera’s owner and various organisations including Wikipedia occurred to know who have the rights for a creation made by non-human. This is a problem we also have at R&D Mediation, not about monkeys, not so frequent here, but about our artificial intelligence.
For a chemicals manufacturer having new substances to produce, being able to write a quick commercial proposal is a major issue. Indeed, for a new molecule, the price depends on many factors and is sometimes difficult to assess. We attempted to train a deep neural network able to give a quick quotation for any new molecule. Hereinafter, the preliminary results are presented.
At the 5th century BC, Oracle in Delphi released 147 aphorisms supposed to come from Apollo himself. All of them are good for inspiration, some of them are quite relevant for innovators, and connected to what we know about creativity and entrepreneurship process (effectuation). Hereafter a list.
AlchemAI is a neural network developed and trained by R&D Mediation to predict market and uses of chemicals. It can find new markets for existing molecules or business opportunities for new chemicals. In August 2017, 98 markets and uses are covered by the AI.
[EN] The nine worthies are a 14th century list of nine special warriors and heroes (three for three period of History). Who would you choose for a 9 worthies innovators list?[FR] Les 9 preux sont une liste datant du XIVème siècle et qui reprend neuf héros guerriers particulièrement valeureux, trois dans trois périodes de l’Histoire. Quels seraient pour vous les neuf preux de l’innovation?
