Digital expert system in materials science being created

Press release (No. 4) - Fraunhofer IWS Dresden /

Scientists of the Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology IWS at Dresden in cooperation with partners from research and industry are planning to create a virtual materials expert system. This system will offer interfaces to publicly available know-how such as the latest scientific papers on materials and relevant standards as well as the practical knowledge of experts. The artificial assistant will provide this accumulated expertise to its human colleagues – thus taking work in materials testing and metallography laboratories to a completely new level.
