Four Uses for AI in Physics

How Artificial Intelligence is Revolutionizing Physics Research

By Angela Wilkins, Executive Director, Ken Kennedy Institute

In the early days of physics, mathematical models were painstakingly written out and solved by hand (I think of Einstein standing in front of a chalkboard of equations). These days, artificial intelligence and machine learning gives researchers the ability to model and compute complex physics problems with far greater speed, accuracy, and creativity than ever before. This article overviews some of my favorite applications of AI in physics-related research.

AI and Gravity
Since gravitational waves were first detected in 2015 by the advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), researchers have been able to study an ever-broader range of gravitational waves from a larger volume of the universe. Improving the sensitivity of LIGO’s detectors means researchers are presented with an influx of data to make sense of in order to pin-point the sources of gravitational waves.
