Resonac Partners with Matmerize to Pioneer 6G Technology Advancement using Innovative AI Software

ATLANTA, Sept. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In a significant collaboration, Matmerize, Inc., a materials AI innovator, and Resonac Corporation have formed a strategic partnership aimed at revolutionizing the landscape of 6G technology. Building on the strong collaborative foundation, Resonac will leverage the power of Matmerize’s PolymRize™ AI software technology to accelerate the development of exceptional high-performance neat and composite materials for 6G technology and beyond.

In January 2023, Resonac Corporation announced plans to develop new semiconductor materials for 6G, the next-generation telecommunication system standard following 5G. With 6G set to be 100 times faster than 5G, new semiconductor materials are needed to substantially reduce the transmission loss associated with the increased communication speed. To meet this requirement, Resonac will identify optimal materials with the required characteristics through computational and Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods in a collaborative venture with Matmerize, Inc. Where manual testing using traditional techniques would demand three months to assess a single materials combination, Matmerize’s AI software, PolymRize™, reduces the time required to a single day and can evaluate up to 90 combinations within the same three-month span. The result promises to be a fusion of materials engineering and artificial intelligence, poised to redefine the development of 6G technology.

PolymRize™ harnesses Matmerize’s proprietary data or client-specific data to construct predictive models. Once built, these models rapidly predict the properties of novel, yet-to-be-synthesized polymers, composites, and formulations, complete with their associated uncertainties. The software employs automated and generative design tools to recommend ideal candidates that meet property requirements for subsequent rounds of physical experimentation. PolymRize™ thus accelerates the journey towards target materials, drastically reducing both time and costs. Moreover, it introduces a framework for data management and organization, and has emerged as a dependable digital aide for chemists and process engineers.

In a pilot initiative, Resonac evaluated Matmerize’s capabilities. Predictive models were constructed using PolymRize™ and 3rd party software for key material properties relevant to 6G technology. Properties included bandgap, dielectric constant, refractive index, glass transition temperature, and coefficient of linear expansion. The performance of PolymRizeTM and third-party models were assessed by making property predictions for identical unseen test cases. PolymRizeTM predictions consistently out-performed third-party models in speed and accuracy (see figure showing Performance of models).

About Resonac:
The Resonac Group is a new company established as a result of the integration of the Showa Denko Group and the Showa Denko Materials Group (former Hitachi Chemical Group) in January 2023. The Group’s annual sales of semiconductor and electronic materials amount to about 400 billion yen, accounting for about 30% of the Group’s annual net sales. The Group especially has global top share of semiconductor materials for packaging process. The integration of the two companies has enabled the Resonac Group to design functions of materials as well as to develop them in-house, going all the way back to raw materials. The new trade name “RESONAC” was created as a combination of two English words, namely, the word of “RESONATE” and “C” as the first letter of CHEMISTRY. The Resonac Group will make the most of its co-creative platform, and accelerate technological innovation with semiconductor manufacturers, material manufacturers, and equipment manufacturers inside and outside Japan.

Meeting held to discuss boosting Jordan-Pakistan trade, investment ties

President of the Amman Chamber of Commerce (ACC), Khalil Al Hajj Tawfiq, recently held a meeting with Ma’en Khreisat, the newly appointed Jordanian Ambassador to Pakistan, in a bid to strengthen economic ties and explore new avenues for trade and investment. The discussion, according to a statement on Wednesday, delved into strategies for enhancing collaboration between the two countries, and bolstering bilateral economic and trade relations. The two officials emphasized the pivotal role of the Jordanian embassy in Pakistan, highlighting its capacity to provide crucial data concerning Pakistan’s market demands for goods and services. Additionally, the embassy is well-positioned to promote investment opportunities within Jordan, especially in light of the recent legislative changes in Pakistan’s investment environment, which offer a host of benefits and incentives for prospective investors. Al-Hajj Tawfiq underscored the untapped potential within Jordanian-Pakistani economic relations, stressing the imperative need for intensified communication among various stakeholders in both countries, particularly in burgeoning sectors. He also articulated the trade and service sectors’ keen interest in increasing imports of Pakistani products. These imports, which span commodities like meat, fish, rice, textiles, and clothing, would complement Jordan’s exports, including fertilizers, phosphates, and potash. The ACC President expressed the Chamber’s readiness to host trade delegations from Pakistan, a move that aims to further consolidate economic relations and leverage Jordan’s strategic geographic location to access regional markets. He also suggested the formation of a Jordanian economic delegation spanning various sectors to visit Pakistan and explore investment opportunities. For his part, Ambassador Khreisat underlined the importance of cooperation in facilitating tours to Jordan’s tourist attractions. This collaboration envisions a comprehensive program for Pakistani tourists, complete with detailed activity explanations, maps of archaeological and religious sites, and cost breakdowns. Looking ahead, he anticipated the convening of joint Jordanian-Pakistani ministerial committee meetings in the spring of 2024, an event that would provide an opportune platform for hosting a business forum, uniting Jordanian and Pakistani business magnates on the sidelines of the official proceedings. The Ambassador urged the ACC to delineate its economic, investment, service, and tourism priorities, in order to form the basis of an action plan for coordinating efforts with Pakistani counterparts and realize shared goals.
