With all the interest that AI is generating at the moment, I naturally wondered if it was at the stage of being able to put cosmetic formulator is out of work yet.If this is the current state of its ability I think we have a few years left.
There is of course nothing particularly special about formulation science. I don’t doubt that one day a lot of the work of creating new formulations will be done by silicon rather than human brain power. I don’t think it will be high up the list of applications though. The really crucial thing though is assessing the value of the formulations once they have been created. While this certainly can be done, it’s not by any means easy. For a while there will be much easier ways of using the the new advances in processing power and algorithms to generate cash.
