Meet The First Robo Scientist
This is not your father's robot. Scientists at Aberystwyth University based in Wales, U.K., have successfully created a robot named Adam that fully automates repetitive tasks in the scientific process. Professor Ross King, a lead scientist from the school's Department of Computer Science, and a colleague stand in front of the robot, which looks more like a data center rather than something from a science-fiction flick. The research project began in 1999 and was funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) in the U.K.
