CASUS Flash Talk, Miroslav Polozij, postdoctoral researcher, Group Theoretical Chemistry, CASUS/HZDR

Abstract of the talk// Recent advances in computational chemistry and AI have led to a new field of chemistry, digital chemistry, bridging the traditional realms of experimental and theoretical chemistry. Digital chemistry utilizes well-known computational methods to directly benefit experiments such as effective optimizations, digital twins and automation. Robotics chemistry, exemplified by programmable “chemical robots”, enhances precision and reproducibility in research. Moreover, these robots offer a gateway to popularize science and show the modern side of chemistry to a wider public. Miroslav will argue that simple robots performing chemical (and physical) experiments are a great tool to also show how interdisciplinary science has become.
