A start-up called Intellegens founded by a physics tutor at a Cambridge college, and is developing machine learning techniques to discover new materials.

Rory Cellan-Jones from the BBC went to visit several Cambridge tech companies including Intellegens.
In this university city, there are still plenty of people hoping to turn Cambridge ingenuity into world-class businesses.
Intellegens is a spin-out from the University of Cambridge with a unique Artificial Intelligence (AI) toolset that can train deep neural networks from sparse or noisy data. The technique, created at the Cavendish Laboratory, is encapsulated in Intellegens first commercial product, AlchemiteTM. The innovative deep learning algorithms that AlchemiteTM is based on can see correlations between all available parameters, both inputs and outputs, in fragmented, unstructured, corrupt or even noisy datasets. The result is accurate models that can predict missing values, find errors and optimise target properties. Capable of working with data that is as little as 0.05% complete, AlchemiteTM can unravel data problems that are not accessible to traditional deep learning approaches. Suitable for deployment across any kind of numeric dataset, AlchemiteTM is delivering ground breaking solutions in drug discovery, advanced materials, patient analytics and predictive maintenance – enabling organisations to break through data analysis bottlenecks, reduce the amount of time and money spent on research, and support better, faster decision-making.
