Your life sciences laboratory may have swapped paper notebooks for electronic ones, but that doesn’t make it a digital lab. What does? In this perspicacious blog post, Christopher Wallace, EPAM VP and Chief Scientist, sketches out the answer—and then provides a compelling image of what’s coming next. What exactly does Wallace forecast? “[I]n my vision of the lab of the future, data collection enabled by plug-and-play devices within the Internet of Lab Things (IoLT), clouds, and real-time analytics drive semi-autonomous laboratory processes—and yes, there will probably be amazingly dexterous robot hands involved, too.”
