Astonishing Achievements in Science Through the Application of Data and Automation
Discovery in every field of fundamental science today is driven by advances in computation, data science and robotics — all areas of strength at Carnegie Mellon University.
New tools and new methods in fundamental biology, chemistry and physics are generating enormous data sets that offer new research directions and possibilities. Computational methods are essential for tracking, sharing and interpreting these data, and robot-equipped labs automate experimentation to further accelerated discovery. CMU is leading this transformation of the scientific method and training the next generation of scientists to lead in this research.
