Automation of Science

Two interesting articles in Science: The Automation of Science is about a robotic system that autonomously generated functional genomic hypotheses about a yeast. The second article, Distilling Free-Form Natural Laws from Experimental Data, is about a system learning from physics experiments and deriving a hypothesis from the data (this is along the lines of the general idea I’ve written about in the past). Cool stuff.

    Older, but still pretty interesting: “A new theorem in particle physics enabled by machine discovery”.

    The note reports a novel finding in particle physics that was enabled by a machine discovery program.
