Complicated physics problems are sometimes simpler than they appear, so physicists have made a machine learning model to search for the simplicity

A machine learning model can solve physics problems by simplifying them to be more symmetric.
“There are many, many cases in the history of science where people thought things were more complicated than they actually were because they hadn’t found the most simple description of it,” says Max Tegmark at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Tegmark and Ziming Liu, also at MIT, programmed a neural network to transform problems with complex …
