The nominating institution IBM Research Europe on the breakthrough:

RoboRXN is a pioneering project, integrating AI, Cloud and Automation to change chemistry, from a traditional type of business into a high-tech business. A chemist (from a remote location) draws the molecule of interest and the AI models assist in the design of the synthesis, finally programming the chemical robots to make the requested molecule, without human intervention. RoboRXN will accelerate a new way of doing chemistry, more digital and without the need for chemists to be in the lab.
