Columbia University's AI Program Discovered Alternative Physics

Scribbled Arrow

Have you ever wondered how artificial intelligence could be used to solve the mysteries of physics?

Columbia University's AI was able to observe Earth's physical phenomena and find the fundamental variables that explain them.

The program found new variables that could explain what it saw instead of the current ones. This could have enormous implications for scientific discovery.

Why does this story matter? Scientists in the past did not have the luxury of relying on computers for scientific discoveries. But times have changed.

AI is on the rise. They might be able to perform complex calculations in a matter of seconds and find new ways of explaining how the universe works.

How were the tests conducted? AI viewed raw video footage of physical phenomena with a camera. 

The scientists then questioned the AI regarding the minimal fundamental variables required to explain them.

It answered '4.7' when it was shown a swinging double pendulum with four variables, the angle and angular velocity for each arm.

Researchers were unable to decipher the mathematical language.

What was its response to other phenomena? The AI also saw other videos. 

These included an AI-generated video of an 'air dancer blowing in the wind' (eight variables), a loop with holiday flames and 24 variables for a holiday fireplace loop.

In comparison, eight variables were generated by a clip of a lava lamp.

The number of variables remained the same each time the AI was restarted. The specific variables changed each time, however.
