Iris is an AI to help science R&D

The team behind Iris AI has two: right now they’ve created an AI-powered science assistant that functions like a search tool, helping researchers track down relevant journal papers without having to know the right keywords for their search. But in future their big vision is their artificially intelligent baby grows up to become a scientist in her own right — capable of forming and even testing hypotheses, based on everything it’s going to learn in its science research assistant ‘first job’ role. Such is the multi-stage, big picture promise of artificial intelligence. Yet convincing customers to buy into AI’s potential now, at what is still a pretty nascent stage in the tech’s development, remains a challenge. Evidence of superior efficacy is required.
