San Francisco — Fictiv, a global manufacturing company, today announced the release of Materials.AI, an AI assistant powered by ChatGPT that helps mechanical engineers navigate material options for their manufacturing needs.
Materials.AI is powered by OpenAI's ChatGPT technology through an API integration with Fictiv's digital manufacturing platform and is trained on Fictiv's manufacturing data and offerings, the company says. As a result, engineers can consult with Materials.AI directly on the Fictiv platform, receive informed material suggestions and place their manufacturing orders.
"Material selection is a crucial factor in our engineering and design process," says Ryan Rivas, design director at Bennett Awards. "To have an on-demand tool that helps with this decision-making process, on top of Fictiv's other AI-powered tools for quoting and design for manufacturability feedback, is going to make a significant impact."
"Historically, manufacturing consultation has been largely confined to one-on-one conversations with too few experts, making it slow and difficult for engineers to get the information they need when it comes to manufacturing," says Chris Lippi, chief product officer at Fictiv. "At Fictiv, we leverage technology to democratize access to critical manufacturing knowledge, tools and services. And so we're thrilled to leverage groundbreaking advances in AI large language models and our own growing dataset to provide customers with an even better service experience."
