A three-pronged approach to using machine learning in knot theory

May 24, 2023
With recent breakthroughs in AI like Chat-GPT and DALL-E 2 making headlines, it's natural to ask what role machine learning will play in mathematics. In this talk I will outline three broad modes through which machine learning can be applied to the field of knot theory and low-dimensional topology. These applications will range from approaches that have already been successfully implemented to more speculative works-in-progress.
