Artifical Intelligence Learns To Run Nobel-Winning Physics Experiment

Bose-Einstein condensate Artificial intelligence systems are getting better at performing jobs that were once thought to be exclusive only for humans. Researchers have created sophisticated AI systems that can write political speeches and even accurately predict who will win the Kentucky Derby. Now, scientists are placing themselves at risk of losing their own job by using AI to run complex science experiment. A pair of researchers has taught an AI to replicate a physics experiment that won three physicists the 2001 Nobel Prize. The experiment involves trapping the Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC), a dilute gas of bosons cooled to extremely cold temperatures in lasers. Bose-Einstein condensates are extremely sensitive to fluctuations in energy, which makes them useful in experiments and measurements. Sensors that are powered by these trapped gases can potentially detect…
