Physicist Creates AI algorithm that may Prove Reality is a Simulation.

By PAUL RATNER

A physicist creates an AI algorithm that predicts natural events and may prove the simulation hypothesis.

  • Princeton physicist Hong Qin creates an AI algorithm that can predict planetary orbits.
  • The scientist partially based his work on the hypothesis which believes reality is a simulation.
  • The algorithm is being adapted to predict behavior of plasma and can be used on other natural phenomena.

A scientist devised a computer algorithm which may lead to transformative discoveries in energy and whose very existence raises the likelihood that our reality could actually be a simulation.

The algorithm was created by the physicist Hong Qin, from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL).

The algorithm employs an AI process called machine learning, which improves its knowledge in an automated way, through experience.

Qin developed this algorithm to predict the orbits of planets in the solar system, training it on data of Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Ceres, and Jupiter orbits. The data is “similar to what Kepler inherited from Tycho Brahe in 1601,” as Qin writes in his newly-published paper on the subject. From this data, a “serving algorithm” can correctly predict other planetary orbits in the solar system, including parabolic and hyperbolic escaping orbits. What’s remarkable, it can do so without having to be told about Newton’s laws of motion and universal gravitation. It can figure those laws out for itself from the numbers.

Qin is now adapting the algorithm to predict and even control other behaviors, with a current focus on particles of plasma in facilities built for harvesting fusion energy powering the Sun and stars.

Qin explained the unusual approach taken by his work:

“Usually in physics, you make observations, create a theory based on those observations, and then use that theory to predict new observations,” said Qin. “What I’m doing is replacing this process with a type of black box that can produce accurate predictions without using a traditional theory or law. Essentially, I bypassed all the fundamental ingredients of physics. I go directly from data to data (…) There is no law of physics in the middle.”

Qin was partially inspired by the work of Swedish philosopher Nick Bostrom, whose 2003 paper famously argued that the world we are living in may be an artificial simulation. What Qin believes he has accomplished with his algorithm is provide a working example of an underlying technology that could support the simulation in Bostrom’s philosophical argument.

In an email exchange with Big Think, Qin remarked: “What is the algorithm running on the laptop of the Universe? If such an algorithm exists, I would argue that it should be a simple one defined on the discrete spacetime lattice. The complexity and richness of the Universe come from the enormous memory size and CPU power of the laptop, but the algorithm itself could be simple.”

Certainly, the existence of an algorithm that derives meaningful predictions of natural events from data does not yet mean that we ourselves have the capabilities to simulate existence. Qin believes we are likely “many generations” away from being able to carry out such feats.

Qin’s work takes the approach of using “discrete field theory,” which he thinks is particularly well suited for machine learning, while somewhat difficult for “a current human” to understand. He explained that “a discrete field theory can be viewed as an algorithmic framework with adjustable parameters that can be trained using observational data.” He added that “once trained, the discrete field theory becomes an algorithm of nature that computers can run to predict new observations.”
