Ross D. King did his PhD on applying machine learning to predicting protein structure at the Turing Institute in Glasgow. He has joint positions at the University of Cambridge, and Chalmers Institute of Technology, Sweden, and is a Fellow of the Alan Turing Institute, London. He is one of the most experienced machine learning researchers in Europe. His main research interest is the interface between computer science and science. He originated the idea of a ‘Robot Scientist’: integrating AI and laboratory robotics to physically implement closed-loop scientific discovery. His Robot Scientist ‘Adam’ was the first machine to autonomously discover scientific knowledge. His Robot Scientist ‘Eve’ is currently searching for drugs against neglected tropical diseases, and COVID. His other core research interest is DNA computing.
