Democratizing Molecular Innovation
World Economic Forum features Ada
Ada was highlighted by the World Economic Forum as an example of how AI is revolutionizing the world of clean energy materials:
"Making clean energy materials cheaper, cleaner, and more durable is not only good for the environment, but also good for business."

We are combining materials science with three key technologies - robotics, artificial intelligence, and advanced computing - to equip our Materials Acceleration Platform "Ada" with capabilities to autonomously make and test new materials. Ada is designed to run an experiment, evaluate the result, and utilize this information to plan and execute the next experiment. Each automated round is guided by machine learning algorithms to maximize efficiency and accelerate innovation. By bringing together synergistic technologies that facilitate automated and autonomous materials science research, Ada will enable the discovery and development of optimal materials at a fraction of the time and cost.
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.
