You are a scientist looking to create a new and more efficient rotor in a turbine engine, and you have 1.5 million metal alloys from which to choose. With so many options, it’s inefficient to start from scratch, so you want to discover all of the research that has been conducted so far. Can you easily find that information? Well, Matthew Jacobsen, who is a project manager/systems analyst and developer from the U.S. Air Force Research Labs, is making that mission possible.
Matthew and his team support U.S. AFRL’s 700 scientists as well as the larger 10,000 members of the materials science community stemming from worldwide organizations such as Lawrence Livermore Labs, and all of these scientists have unique use cases. To serve these various audiences and use cases, Matthew and his team created the HyperThought platform based on MarkLogic. Watch the video below to learn more about it.
We’ve seen two orders of magnitude of improvement over the SQL-based solutions that we’ve used prior to coming into a MarkLogic context.”
