Noble_Logo_01 (1).png

Noble.AI solves the real world data wrangling problems and enables simulations 10-100x faster than the traditional market leading tools available today. The company dramatically increases productivity and lowers the cost of bringing new scientific products to market.

AI that was originally built for consumer applications often produces nonsensical results. This often creates more work than cost savings, as teams need to parse through the results to find solutions that could actually be implemented. Noble has developed patent-pending SaaS technology that incorporates these scientific constraints into AI models, so they only learn solutions that are physically viable. This is particularly useful for R&D targeted at Automotive, Chemicals and Chemical Engineering, Metallurgy and Material Science, Electronics Design, and for the semiconductor industry where a real-world product will need to be created and brought to market, so physical constraints really matter.

Currently available products/capabilities include:

Noble Blueprint™ is the ultimate data wrangling tool across all complex R&D data sources. Blueprint’s AI understands what is important in the data and delivers databases with quantified certainty metrics. Customers customize Blueprint one time per new document type, at fixed time and cost, then scale to process any number of documents almost instantly. Documents can be data that is unstructured, structured, times series, etc. Results of deploying Noble Blueprint yielded 85% reduction in the spend on ETL (Extract, Transform and Load).

Noble Reactor™ enables data acquisition at 10-100x faster than conventional simulations, at higher accuracy. This allows teams to innovate faster by ruling out nonphysical scenarios & candidate experiments and brings new products to market more expediently.

Backed by Solvay (a $10 billion/year global leader in Chemistry R&D), Streamlined Ventures, WTI, OVO, WI Harper, and Stanford University, Noble is early revenue with several marquee global powerhouse customers already signed up. The company is headquartered in San Francisco and also has an office in Los Angeles.
