Our startup story began with a challenge

While working in his grandfather’s factory, Mr. Fahad Farooq, was given a challenge by his grandfather to develop 24K Gold coatings which are used as decorative coatings on ceramic tableware.

The challenge was accepted! and 8 years of extensive research work was executed by him to develop the first commercially viable sample of the product.

In the pursuit of developing this product, he found several sub-challenges. And in order to overcom those challenges different technologies were development in the field of scientific research, process engineering and information technology.

Several ideas were conceived and several solutions were developed. All of these were quite useful not only for the 24K gold coatings venture, but also for almost every business in the world.

So, it was decided to open the door to the world! and offer all the technologies and techniques to the whole world!

CMYK Research – Problem Solving At Its Heart!  

The startup was founded in 2015 by Mr. Fahad Farooq, a young and ambitious entrepreneur who had a passion for science and technology. 

CMYK Research started offering its services to other businesses as a problem solving company. Our started assisted other companies in developing new materials through continuous research and development. 

Besides this, CMYK Research’s sister company which was offering software & web development 

Ironstep software merger

Merger of Ironstep Software 

Ironstep Software was also founded by Mr. Fahad Farooq during the pursuit of developing the 24K deocorative coatings. The company was engaged in offering Enterprise Resource Planning Systems and web development services. 

In order to consolidate all the efforts and organize all the business processes, a unified business management approach was required. Therefore the decision was made to merge the software development company with its parent company CMYK Research. 

Now all the scientific research and technology related services are offered under one umbralla of CMYK Research.

Our Aim is to Solve Industry Problems  Through Autonomous AI Based Scientific Solutions 

Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly transforming the way we live and work. In the industrial sector, AI is being used to solve a wide range of problems, from improving efficiency to reducing costs.

One of the most promising applications of AI in industry is the development of autonomous scientific solutions. These solutions use AI to automate the scientific research process, from data collection and analysis to hypothesis generation and testing. This can free up scientists to focus on more creative and strategic aspects of their work, and it can lead to faster and more accurate results.

There are a number of ways that autonomous AI-based scientific solutions can be used to solve industry problems. For example, they can be used to:

  • Develop new materials and products
  • Improve manufacturing processes
  • Design more efficient and effective energy systems
  • Develop new medical treatments
  • Improve crop yields
  • Protect the environment

The potential applications of autonomous AI-based scientific solutions are endless. As AI technology continues to develop, we can expect to see even more innovative and groundbreaking solutions being developed in the years to come.

Here are some specific examples of how AI is being used to solve industry problems:

  • In the manufacturing sector, AI is being used to automate tasks such as quality control and inventory management. This can lead to significant improvements in efficiency and productivity.
  • In the energy sector, AI is being used to develop new ways to generate and store energy. This could help to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and make our energy grid more resilient.
  • In the healthcare sector, AI is being used to develop new drugs and treatments for diseases. This could lead to better outcomes for patients and lower healthcare costs.
  • In the agriculture sector, AI is being used to improve crop yields and reduce water usage. This could help to feed a growing population and protect the environment.

These are just a few examples of the many ways that AI is being used to solve industry problems. As AI technology continues to develop, we can expect to see even more innovative and groundbreaking solutions being developed in the years to come.
