Things I read last week… (WB 6 Jun 2022)
AI in science
“…scientific discovery is a ‘search’ problem, based on a self-correcting system of hypotheses, experiments, and data that AI can emulate. Through automation and algorithms, AI can link together causes and correlations that no human could connect … AI is ushering in a new scientific revolution by making remarkable breakthroughs in a number of fields, unlocking new approaches to science, and accelerating the pace of science and innovation.”
