Autonomous Discovery

Reimagining the Future of Scientific Discovery through AI, Robotics and Lab-wide Collaboration

Argonne National Laboratory is transforming the future of laboratory science with our exploration into Autonomous Discovery. This initiative centers on the idea that self-driving labs can streamline processes, save resources, and accelerate the pace of discovery.

Our program harnesses the power of artificial intelligence — including robotics, machine learning, simulations and more — to aid in the planning, execution and analysis of scientific experiments.

Our Goals

  • Automate the laboratory. We plan to cover lab benchtops with fixed-in-place robots.
  • Automate the scientist. We will incorporate mobile, humanlike” robots in lab spaces.
