Five Mistakes to avoid on Digitalization in NIR-Spectroscopy – that Lab Managers, Executives and CEOs must know!

The fast and non-destructive NIR-Spectroscopy analysis method is based on predictive models that are built upon spectral and Lab reference data.

Developing such models with Chemometric techniques or Machine Learning Algorithms can now be fully automatized with many advantages.

If your company uses NIR-Spectroscopy, do you know if your company yet tried this calibration service? And if not, why not?

Here are some possible reasons why such services are blocked in your company.

With the knowledge where and why it may be blocked, you are able to overcome the barriers and go for innovation.

Misbeliefs of People that may block Advanced Services (AI and Automatic Machine Learning)


5 Mistakes to avoid on Digitalization in NIR-Spectroscopy
Misbeliefs People Remove barriers
1 You need to program or scripting with data modeling tools (R, Phyton, TensorFlow, Matlab, sas, SPSS, H2O, scikit, …..) The opinion that only PhD (statisticians, data scientists) are smart enough to create models. Give the service a try, and compare! There are free trials for calibration development.
2 We have done it always manually by hand. We must see the plots and interpret the stats in every step.
Job protectionism : “My job will dramatically change if that will work, so I will never prepare real-life data to give someone a possibility to try such a service.”
AI / ML haters (NIR-Specialists, NIR-Experts) don’t belive in automated calibration. Give the service a try, and compare! You will see plots and stats! There are free trials for calibration development.
3 Against any new hardware, software or service because of supposed new problems. Preserving ones – the permission gate keepers (IT) Give it a try, without an account, download the free NIR-Predictor software (full version, no limitations) with included demo data, it installs and runs without Administrator priviledge!
4 Ensures that new methodologies follow the rules. Any new thing will give extra work for them. Compliance and Regulation officers. Get access to the detailed model blueprint (ISO 12099) – there is no vendor lock-in or black-box model. You can even anonymize your data for Knowledge Protection – see JCAMP-Anonymizer.
5 Our employees are open for new things. Our employees do not block. Managers, executives, board level. Remove the Barriers to Innovation!
