Behind the Name

The name Atinary comes from the Spanish verb atinar, which means hit, as in hit the target. Our leading ML technology can hit targets ten to hundred times faster than standard methods used in industry and academia, such as Design of Experiments (DoE) and High-throughput Experimentation (HTE). In addition, our ML algorithms outperform competing ML algorithms.

Our Commitment

We believe in a world where science and technology contribute to accelerating the transition to a sustainable planet and a circular economy.

We are committed to promoting global multi-disciplinary collaborations and partnerships that put cutting-edge scientific knowledge into action. We develop and deploy technologies that exponentially accelerate breakthrough discoveries and innovation.
Nature has inspired the discovery of many materials that have advanced humanity. From medicines, inspired by plant properties to solar panels, inspired by leaves and photosynthesis. Yet, to date, only a small fraction of all possible materials have been explored.
Breakthrough materials are fundamental elements of cutting-edge technologies that are tackling some of humanity’s most pressing challenges, including climate change, renewable energy, and future pandemics.

Our Vision

Democratize the access to and use of ML technology and make materials discovery exponentially faster to tackle humanity’s biggest challenges.

We make ML and deploying the Self-Driving Labs® technology at scale accessible within a few clicks.

Our Mission

Accelerate R&D and discovery of breakthrough materials and molecules to bring better products and solutions to market faster.


Why does accelerated materials discovery matter?

Accelerating R&D matters because materials are essential to improve our lives and tackle some of humanity’s biggest challenges. For example, better materials are key to reduce pollution, address climate change, and to improve health. We also need better materials to get rid of microplastics and to develop:


more affordable batteries that last
longer and are not toxic


more efficient solar cells that can
be deployed everywhere


more effective carbon capture use and
sequestration tech


Our founders have worked together since 2017 developing the Self-Driving Labs® technology. They published several academic papers, including test cases about solar cell optimization, and catalyst discovery, in top peer-reviewed journals.
