Through automation and algorithms, artificial intelligence (AI) can link together causes and correlations that no human could connect. But AI is more than a just powerful tool in the hands of scientists and partners on this search. The technology is also transforming the scientific process, automating and adding to what people can accomplish using it.

AI is ushering in a new scientific revolution by making remarkable breakthroughs in a number of fields, unlocking new approaches to science, and accelerating the pace of science and innovation. As partners in discovery, AI and scientists can explore more of science's endless frontier together than either could alone.
