Robot Makes Autonomous Scientific Discovery for First Time

A robot named Adam is reported to be the first robot ever to independently uncover scientific knowledge.

The robot's AI made a hypothesis about the genomics of a yeast, planned a test for the hypothesis and carried the test out in its lab. The results were replicated by human scientists later, confirming that, no, the robot wasn't lying about its discovery to get on the fast track to tenure.
