The Extraordinary Link Between Deep Neural Networks and the Nature of the Universe

Much of machine learning is more empirical than theoretical: we can prove that it works, but we're not always sure why it works. Nowhere has this been more true than neural networks. Recently, two physicists published a paper positing an answer: the universe "favors certain classes of exceptionally simple probability distributions that deep learning is uniquely suited to model". This is important.
