Awarded University KTP for Artificial Intelligence

University Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) on AI


The University of Bath has been awarded a new Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with ioMosaic to explore Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning techniques to support chemical process safety.

Software models for process safety analysis can currently take days or weeks to evaluate a single engineering scenario. They can be repetitive and costly, often involving expert consulting input.

However, the AI methodologies to be developed through the KTP with Bath will help ioMosaic with analyzing trends in engineering data that could indicate safety concerns in shorter timeframes and at reduced cost.

Reducing the time taken for system analysis will further increase the competitiveness of ioMosaic’s offerings, indicating where combinations of design scenario and device configuration could lead to safety concerns.

"We are very much looking forward to the collaboration with University of Bath on research which directly complements our existing portfolio of products and services. This will no doubt be a game changer in the world of process safety."
Dr. John Barker, Director at ioMosaic

The KTP will create a Centre of Excellence within the UK in process engineering and AI process safety analysis, serving the UK and global markets. The technology, to be delivered through the partnership, will be a step-change in process safety engineering through rapid and cost-effective analysis of complex process systems.
