Stephen Ornes in Quanta Magazine  today —

Symbolic Mathematics Finally Yields to Neural Networks

“Another possible direction for the neural net to explore
is the development of automated theorem generators.
Mathematicians are increasingly investigating ways to
use AI to generate new theorems and proofs, though
‘the state of the art has not made a lot of progress,’
Lample said.  ‘It’s something we’re looking at.’ “

The New York Times , reporting yesterday on the death of
a distinguished expert in the field of artificial intelligence,
said that he “laid the foundation for the field.”

“A Bad Case of Mixed Metaphors:
Psychiatry, Law, Politics, Society,
and Ezra Pound”

by Arnold M. Ludwig,
American Journal of Psychotherapy
2000 Winter; 54(1): 116-117

From that paper
the conceptual foundation for the field
continues to be primitive.”
