Our Mission

Our mission is to accelerate the discovery and optimization of advanced clean energy materials by developing self-driving laboratories that combine flexible automation with machine learning and computational screening.

Materials discovery is a key element of the innovation cycle for new technologies, particularly in the clean energy sector. However, discovering effective materials among a vast array of conceivable formulations can take decades using conventional approaches. The slow pace is costly, time-consuming, and inadequately addresses society’s urgent need for clean energy solutions. The fundamentally different approach behind self-driving laboratories offers the opportunity to deploy renewable energy technologies faster than ever before.



In partnership with:

The Clean Energy Materials Innovation Challenge of Mission Innovation co-led by Dr. Mark Kozdras (NRCan),
Dr. Hermann Tribukait (Mexico lead for Mission Innovation IC6)


Ada Lovelace

Ada Lovelace was the world’s first computer programmer; she began algorithm development over 150 years ago for Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine. Her vision that computers have potential far beyond calculation inspires us to push the boundaries of computing for the benefit of materials discovery.
