A robot named Adam is reported to be the first robot ever to independently uncover scientific knowledge.

The robot's AI made a hypothesis about the genomics of a yeast, planned a test for the hypothesis and carried the test out in its lab. The results were replicated by human scientists later, confirming that, no, the robot wasn't lying about its discovery to get on the fast track to tenure.


And so Skynet began. Judgement day is upon us, folks.
Next up: The robot discovers where his socks dissapear to when he puts them in the dryer.

lol

This is a big step though. Just being able to use a robot to carry out experiments in cases where it might be harmful or fatal to humans can bring about some interesting things I'm sure
