Absolute mad lads are teaching physics to AI because how else will it learn to solve real-world problems (like humans)

Published April 18, 2019

An article on The Register, an English technology news and opinion website, reports UB researchers are working to introduce the laws of physics into machine learning models to improve the way algorithms understand the real world and interviews Rahul Rai, associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering.

"We're teaching physics to AI systems," he said. "We are developing hybrid methods that integrate physics-based models – these are math-based formulas that explain the world around us, such as Einstein's E=MC2 – into the algorithms that guide machine learning, deep learning and other data-driven AI systems."
