A.I. systems for R&D
Researchers from North Carolina State University and the University at Buffalo have developed a technology called "Artificial Chemist," which incorporates artificial intelligence (AI) and an automated system for performing chemical reactions to accelerate R&D and manufacturing of commercially desirable materials.
"Artificial Chemist is a truly autonomous system
that can intelligently navigate through the chemical
universe," says Milad Abolhasani, corresponding author of a paper on the work and an assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at NC State.
Companies using A.I. for R&D could have a subtantial advantage against competitors, and this may also change service provision by Innovation Agencies and technology brokers. What if Technology Brokers also use A.I. to match client needs?
