Navigating the complexities of rubber development: Bridging AI and DoE

This presentation explores the fusion of Design of Experiments (DoE) with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). AI utilizes historical data like words or facial pixels, relying on neural network algorithms. However, AI demands extensive data, an issue in rubber development where data is abundant but lacks standardization. These datasets exhibit unique measurement errors, making them distinct from the norm. Storing such complex data in the cloud is complicated, with compatibility issues between polymers, crosslinking systems, and insoluble ingredients posing challenges. Integrating this heterogeneous data is a formidable task, as conventional cloud storage falls short.
