Very cool work - extracting uniform laws from reams of raw data. In the same way DNN computer vision sees things that humans cannot (eg ultra small defects), “DeepPhysics” may “see” new physical laws
Little-known companies are amassing your data — like food orders and Airbnb messages — and selling the analysis to clients. Here’s how to get a copy of what they have on you.
