IBM Research Europe and Thieme Chemistry Join Forces to Share Data

IBM Research Europe and Thieme Chemistry teamed up to improve the IBM RXN for Chemistry cloud platform, which uses AI to help synthetic organic chemists predict the outcomes of chemical reactions. Thieme Chemistry is providing synthesis data via its Science of Synthesis digital publication source on organic chemistry. The press release shares that “initial results show that Thieme-trained models predict correct reactions twice as often as baseline models when tested on Science of Synthesis chemistry.”

“Six highly-renowned organic synthesis experts and their groups have agreed to test the retrained models. Together this collaboration will help drive the development of state-of-the-art custom-fit tools for organic chemists,” says M. Fiona Shortt de Hernandez, senior director of product management, strategic partnerships, and Science of Synthesis at Thieme Chemistry.

“The collaboration with Thieme is an important landmark between AI solution providers and domain specific data publishers, with important business opportunities for both,” says Teodoro Laino, distinguished scientist at IBM Research Europe. Laino is “curious to see how [the preliminary results] will lead in the next months to an improved AI experience for synthetic organic chemists.”
