An AI Just Independently Discovered Alternate Physics

Grab any physics textbook and you’ll find formula after formula describing how things wobble, fly, swerve and stop. The formulas describe actions we can observe, but behind each could be sets of factors that aren’t immediately obvious.   Now, a new AI program developed by researchers at Columbia University has seemingly discovered its own alternative …

Artificial Intelligence Discovers Alternative Physics

Latent embeddings from our framework colored by physical state variables. Credit: Boyuan Chen/Columbia Engineering A new Columbia University AI program observed physical phenomena and uncovered relevant variables—a necessary precursor to any physics theory. But the variables it discovered were unexpected. Energy, Mass, Velocity. These three variables make up Einstein’s iconic equation E=MC2. But how did …
