In our next webinar we will take a step back to look at the future of material development and the promises of emerging tools to accelerate it.


“Some of humanity’s most urgent problems will be solved by chemistry. It is of great importance to make new molecules faster and speed up the discovery of materials.”


Dr. Alan Aspuru pushes the boundaries of autonomous lab work by combining computation, machine learning and workflow solutions. Together with collaborators around the globe he conceives platforms with the ability to self-optimize their output and, bit by bit, decrypt the art of chemistry.

Alan will present a DARPA-funded collaboration involving the groups of Lee Cronin, Jason Hein, Bartosz Grzybowski and Marty Burke that aims to create self-driving laboratories and make better optoelectronic materials. We will discuss the project alongside recent progress in AI for chemistry.

This is the fourth webinar in our series on the Digital Transformation of R&D and QC Labs.

Are you Ready for the Lab of the Future?

As organizations across industries such as pharma, biotech, chemicals, cosmetics and food & beverage seek to redefine the way research and labs operate, it is crucial that they are able to keep their finger on the pulse regarding new technologies, systems and processes to increase the speed of innovation.

In order to truly capitalize on the promise of tomorrow’s lab, organizations are tasked with managing, standardizing and analyzing a complex volume of data to inform decision making, building greater connectivity throughout the lab through automation, as well as harnessing digital technologies to unlock new ways of working and unshackle the scientist from the bench.

The Smartlab Exchange brings together some of the leading minds responsible spearheading innovative laboratory strategies across the R&D/R&D IT, Manufacturing and QA/QC space for two days packed with idea-sharing and informal networking, arming attendees with the stimulus they need to drive forward innovation within their respective organizations.
