Schötz - Silver Brain AI AG has gained Roche as its first paying customer for a new submission tool developed on the basis of Artificial Intelligence (AI). With the IUCLID Assist software solution, documentation for the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) can be automated.

Silver Brain AI, a start-up based in Schötz in the canton of Lucerne, has developed an AI-powered tool in conjunction with the pharmaceutical company Roche for automated data capture, further details of which can be found in a LinkedIn post. According to an article published by the portal, Silver Brain AI has successfully gained Roche as its first paying customer.

The IUCLID Assist software developed by the start-up facilitates the creation of databases that can be restructured in a user-friendly manner using RAG technologies. In particular, the tool is intended to be used in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. As a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) program, the assistant developed on the basis of generative AI can automate the capture and coordination of huge volumes of data. This means that a data collection process that previously had to be completed manually will not only be significantly faster, but also more precise, the developers claim.

The IUCLID6 Assist tool developed by Silver Brain AI is intended to support documentation for inherent and dangerous substances (IUCLID) required by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) and to automate this by leveraging the benefits of AI. The manufacturers of the tool expect data processing times to be cut by 95 percent, with a cost saving of 50 percent against the expenses typically incurred. In addition, with the option of automatically comparing a large number of database entries and studies in a prompt manner, the number of toxicological experiments can be reduced and redundant animal experiments can be significantly limited.

Silver Brain AI is currently working on the development of additional tools for industry, the banking sector and administration. ce/ww
