Can quantum mechanics explain consciousness?
Quantum mechanics + consciousness: There is nothing better than mixing
two great mysteries to produce an even bigger one.
KEY TAKEAWAYS
Despite the tremendous success of quantum physics, its interpretation /
remains uncertain. The brain, which is made up of neurons, which themselves
are made up of molecules, is likely influenced by quantum effects.
Can quantum mechanics and neuroscience be merged into a theory of "quantum consciousness"?

Dyson's eternal intelligence
Dyson's eternal intelligence concept (the Dyson Scenario), proposed by Freeman Dyson in 1979,
proposes a means by which an immortal society of intelligent beings in an open universe
may escape the prospect of the heat death of the universe by extending subjective time
to infinity even though expending only a finite amount of energy.

Artificial intelligence that can discover hidden physical laws in various data
Date: December 9, 2021
Source: Kobe University
Summary:
Researchers have successfully developed artificial intelligence technology that can extract hidden equations
of motion from regular observational data and create a model that is faithful to the laws of physics.
This technology could enable us to discover the hidden equations of motion behind phenomena for which
the laws were considered unexplainable. For example, it may be possible to use physics-based knowledge
and simulations to examine ecosystem sustainability.

These research achievements were made public on December 6, 2021, and were presented at the
Thirty-fifth Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS2021), a meeting
on artificial intelligence technologies.
This research was among the top 3% selected for the spotlight category.

Is an ''artificial intelligence'' smarter than their creators?
