RoboRXN: AI based Chemistry Lab
IBM announced an AI/ Cloud based chemistry lab called RoboRXN.
The main idea to develop such a lab is to help pharmacists and chemists come with better and faster new materials with less trial and error work. This trial-and-error method is often tedious and expensive blitz on.
IBM also stated, in the present day, a company spends $10 million (takes on average 10 years) on average for developing a useful material. Therefore, IBM is aiming to automate much of the process.
The company has broadened their horizons by launching their cloud-based app in 2018 that predicts the output of chemical reactions.
RoboRXN went a whole new level by letting chemists feed the system a molecule they desire to make.
