If the program is intelligent, by definition its output is interesting,
i.e. has a high novelty. The more interesting, the less predictable.

Physics would seem to make high-res bulk images without degradation of
structure rather impossible. Of course, if you use destructive (layer by
layer abrasive) cryo AFM, you can record the relevant info. Assuming
you know what it is, of course, or have enough storage, so that you record
stuff you can make a few more passes over, to be catched by better
