Having just watched an episode of Sarah Connor: The Terminator Chronicles writing an article about a new breed of robot being created is not ideal.
UK researchers at Cambridge and Aberystwyth universities believe they have broken new ground by creating a ‘robot scientist’ capable of carrying out research without the need for human intervention.Named ‘Adam’ the robot brings a more human approach to carrying out scientific tasks, unlike traditional robots that are programmed to repeat a given task many times over.

The likely use of robots like ‘Adam’ will be to replace he need for graduate students to carry out the most time consuming and tedious experimentation. Anyone have Sarah Connor’s number?
