Nobel Prize-winning experiment replicated by Artificial Intelligence

MELBOURNE: Scientists have used an artificial intelligence system to successfully replicate a complex experiment that won the 2001 Nobel Prize in Physics, an advance which may help conduct bigger and more precise research.The experiment created an extremely cold gas trapped in a laser beam, known as a Bose-Einstein condensate.”I didn’t expect the machine could learn to do the experiment itself, from scratch, in under an hour,” said co-lead researcher Paul Wigley from The Australian National University (ANU).”A simple computer programme would have taken longer than the age of the Universe to run through all the combinations and work this out,” said Wigley.Bose-Einstein condensates are some of the coldest places in the Universe, far colder than outer space, typically less than a billionth of a degree above absolute zero.They could be…
