Your new lab partner: A mobile robot chemist (from Nature youtube channel)

Scientists at the University of Liverpool have developed a fully autonomous mobile robot to assist them in their research.

Using a type of AI, the robot has been designed to work uninterrupted for weeks at a time, allowing it to analyse data and make decisions on what to do next. Using a flexible arm with customised gripper it can be calibrated to interact with most standard lab equipment and machinery as well as navigate safely around human co-workers and obstacles.
