Physicist Proposes New Way To Think About Intelligence

These diagrams show how software that harnesses "causal entropic forces" emulates the intelligent behavior required to walk upright or use tools.

  

A single equation grounded in basic physics principles could describe intelligence and stimulate new insights in fields as diverse as finance and robotics, according to new research. 

Alexander Wissner-Gross, a physicist at Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Cameron Freer, a mathematician at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, developed an equation that they say describes many intelligent or cognitive behaviors, such as upright walking and tool use.
