  • Machine learning reveals hidden turtle pattern in quantum fireworks
    Two years ago, physicists at the University of Chicago were greeted with fireworks—atoms shooting out in jets—when they discovered a new form of quantum behavior. But the patterns underlying the bright jets were difficult to pick out from the noise. Instead, the scientists took an approach new to the field: machine learning. By running the data through a pattern recognition algorithm, ... READ MORE
