Episode 58: Autonomous Research Revolution

Dr. Alexis Lewis of the National Science Foundation, Dr. Benji Maruyama of the Air Force Research Laboratory, and Dr. Eric Stach of the University of Pennsylvania join the podcast to discuss autonomous research and how open-source software can enable scientists to expedite research.

The team recently coauthored a review of autonomous research systems and their role in advancing future developments in materials science. The article, which is the September cover story in the journal Matter, explores the current and future state of autonomous research systems and is currently available online at https://www.cell.com/matter/issue?pii=S2590-2385(20)X0010-5.
