Some work... you bet.
It's not so much that a machine eliminates trial and error, but that its trials and errors are completed in nanoseconds and go unnoticed.
Time wise, it's as though they came directly to a conclusion.
When in fact, they may have checked hundreds, or even millions of combinations, prior to their conclusion.
They can do millions of "Nope, that won't work" trials in seconds, or less.

Yup... we have the mechanics of motion down fairly well; now it's a matter of robots knowing when, where and why.... Ha! And keeping their balance when they do it.
That ability to make decisions on the fly, will also be helpful in research.
The first time a saw a robot arm look at several parts, in various, random positions, make a determination as to which would be the best one to go after, then turn and twist in order to pick it up properly, without damaging it.... I was amazed. It did it in a matter of seconds... look, position itself, dive for the part and grasp it, then place it into a nest for the next operation.
Ha! I'd miss out on some of my break from watching it work.

Kraven Dr. Kaku clearly wrote in one of his books that he believes when we have faster Computers we will have more cures. Particularly for Polygenic diseases like autism. I pray that we will have them ASAP.
The reality is that the even the brilliant Scientist have difficulty with the complex Mathematics involved. That is why we have had so many Scientific break through since are Computer Technology has improved.
Yes I know you have experience working in the Factory. What you have learned comes through even on line.
