Max Tegmark, MIT
The study of deep learning lies at the intersection between AI and machine learning, physics, and neuroscience. Exploring connections between physics and deep learning can yield important insights about the theory and behavior of deep neural networks, such as their expressibility, efficiency, learnability, and robustness.
