AI Copernicus ‘discovers’ that Earth orbits the Sun

nature.com
  • Neural network inspired by brain structure, developed to help solve contradictions in quantum mechanics, comes up with Copernicus-style formulas for Mars’s trajectory.
  • While it created the formulas by itself, it doesn’t understand them — a human still needs to interpret the results.
  • The network consists of two sub-networks, one of them learns from data, and the other uses those learnings to make new predictions and test them.
  • In the future, it’s possible that it could discover new laws of physics, but most importantly it could remove contradictions from current quantum mechanics laws.
