Iris.ai Materiom partners with Iris.ai to create a database for regenerative materials. Iris.ai has recently partnered with Materiom to help building the world's largest database and research community of material science knowledge to aid the transition away from petrochemicals. With the automated extraction and systematizing of the content, recipes and ensuing properties of materials from more than 50,000 articles, Materiom will have laid a solid foundation for their groundbreaking community of researchers. This database will then be published on Materiom's platform to speed up R&D processes and market entry of regenerative materials. This will ultimately lead to reduced plastics pollution, and the creation of a materials economy that benefits ecological regeneration. [Full Announcement].
