+ - AI Performs Independent Experiments->

Submitted by
Harmast writes "A British AI program, supplied with an automated laboratory setup and a large database of yeast biology, has done independent research into baker's yeast and produced new and useful, if simple, results. 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."
