Robots Will Win The Next Nobel?

In an increasingly automated society, even scientific research will be done by robots instead soon. Imagine the increase in efficiency when human errors are eliminated from scientific experiments, instead we have tireless robots exhausting possibilities, even potentially dangerous ones.

Meet ADAM, a robot scientist, who was on display late August in The Science Museum in South Kensington. Dr Larisa Soldatova, from the Brunel Department of Computer Science was part of the team to demonstrate what it can do.

Dr Soldatova said: “In the coming decades scientific discoveries will be made by teams of human and robot scientists working together, and these collaborations will generate scientific knowledge more efficiently than either could alone. It is an exciting time for science and it’s great to be able to share this developing way of working with children who could be the scientists of the future.”
