In 2018, Visium paired up with Firmenich, the world’s largest privately owned Fragrance and Flavor companies to create a breakthrough in chemical formula generation.

The cross collaboration of Firmenich’s 125 years of expertise in chemical formulas, and Visium’s advanced knowledge in cutting-edge Machine Learning solutions, enabled the creation of a ML solution that could automatically, and independently create chemical formulas to match a certain perfume or taste identity. Experienced chemists and perfumers can then tailor these AI-generated formulas to create a superior fragrances and tastes that suit the nuances of each category and market. This cross-team collaboration has create the world’s first AI-generate flavor, and AI-enabled fragrance, as applied to Laundry Detergent.
