Sparx also now offers data mining capabilities for complex data sets or nonlinear analyses employing techniques such as Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) and Linear Discriminate Analysis (LDA) that can be deployed to find unknown correlations from observed behaviors in chemical and mechanical systems.

Further, these statistical methods may be employed for formulation optimization in the connection of chemical variables with observed performance for high value applications.
