As reported in Nature today, the research groups of Professor Ceder and Persson collaborated on the creation of an Autonomous Laboratory for the Synthesis of New Inorganic Materials.  Using integration with the Materials Project (, text-mined synthesis knowledge from over 5Million research papers, and data from Google Deepmind, the A-lab demonstrated the autonomous synthesis of 41 novel compounds predicted by the Materials Project.  This robotic laboratory, driven by AI algorithms and data from the Materials Project, is expected to significantly accelerate the development of novel materials for clean energy
