Artificial Chemist 2.0: quantum dot R&D in less than an hour

“And the first time you set up Artificial Chemist 2.0 to produce quantum dots in any given class, the robot autonomously runs a set of active learning experiments. This is how the brain of the robotic system learns the materials chemistry,” Abolhasani says. This learning stage will take between one and 10 hours depending on the class of material. Artificial Chemist 2.0 can determine the best possible formulation for generating the desired quantum dots f after the one-time active learning cycle.

Two chemical reactors are incorporated into Artificial Chemist 2.0, running in a sequence. The system is designed to be fully independent, allowing users to move from one material to another without the system needing to be shut down. You can find a video of how the device operates at DyV-hohLw.
