A new robot developed in the United Kingdom has the ability to conduct research by itself
Researchers have successfully developed a new robot that is able to reason, formulate theories, and work on new scientific breakthroughs without the need of real scientists.
This marks the first time that a robotic system has been able to make its own scientific discovery with minimal intellectual input from humans. Researchers have been able to create software programs able to analyze data for hypotheses, but this is important because the robot is able to take a scientific experiment from a hypothesis, experiment, reformulated hypothesis -- if necessary -- all without the assistance of humans.
