Two research teams have claimed that they have created autonomous robo-scientists that can reason, formulate theories and discover scientific knowledge autonomously. Hod Lipson and Michael Schmidt of Cornell University in New York, have developed a program for Twister II that deciphered Newton's laws without any physics instructions.

Meanwhile, Ross King and team in Wales at Aberystwyth University made Adam, who carries out actual experiments and plans the next one.
