Inside the Lab Where Robots Run Their Own Experiments

This is a laboratory run by robots with virtually no human intervention as part of an industry-wide push toward automation. The robot scientists can be found executing thousands of experiments, searching for life-saving drugs, and building synthetic organisms. In this Focal Point, we take a look inside Strateos, a robotic cloud lab that is fundamentally reimagining scientific discovery. We sit down with both Ben Miles, Head of Product at Strateos Cloud Lab, and Robert Murphy, Head of Computational Biology at Carnegie Mellon University, to learn more about what automation could mean for the future of scientific research. Find out how these labs run by robots can transform how we develop new therapies, and even offer more reliable results, in this Focal Point.
