The machine, named Adam, was the result of a five year project of biologists and computer scientists at Cambridge and Aberystwyth universities. Adam was, without intervention but under monitoring,able to form a hypothesis and perform experiments to test and refine it. The results, confirmed independently by human scientists, yielded information about the gene encoding for yeast enzymes."
