Artificial Intelligence Software Invents new things

Incredible but I love it! Software to help make new discoveries or products.
“The Boston firm Invention Machine has sold them to more than 500 manufacturing companies around the world in the form of a software bundle called Goldfire Innovator. From the broadly theoretical to the minutely practical, Goldfire not only delivers and catalogs information but makes connections between experts and content from different industries, often using assets you didn’t even know you had.
More importantly, Goldfire makes innovation a repeatable and predictable process. It also indexes what the user already knows and owns, helping envision new applications for those assets; it offers access to a collection of basic scientific principles and phenomena, along with 3,300 technical websites residing on the Deep Web — meaning you won’t find them on Google or Yahoo; and it can even consult its own database of 20 million existing patents to see how successful inventions have evolved.
For the price of a software license, Goldfire makes it possible to innovate continuously with results that show: Invention Machine helped one manufacturer figure out how to build a more affordable rocket engine by reminding engineers of an idea gathering dust in the company’s own archives, while another user was able to envision a complex biofuels process well before designing it.
Since the late 1940s Russian inventor Genrich Altshuller had sifted through reams of patents covering successful inventions, organizing them according to the physical principles and basic mechanisms they contained. Using this analysis, he developed a set of what he called Inventive Principles that could be taught to engineers, scientists, and inventors who wanted to be more productive.
Altshuller’s method became known by the acronym TRIZ, meaning “the theory of solving inventor’s problems.” That early Russian work lives on in a much expanded form in Goldfire Innovator.” – Full Article Source
