The first-ever artificial intelligence simulation of the universe seems to work like the real thing — and is almost as mysterious.

Researchers reported the new simulation June 24 in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The goal was to create a virtual version of the cosmos in order to simulate different conditions for the universe's beginning, but the scientists also hope to study their own simulation to understand why it works so well.

Age - Scale - Universe - Formation - Daunting

Given the enormous age and scale of the universe, understanding its formation is a daunting challenge. One tool in the astrophysicist toolbox is computer modeling. Traditional models require a lot of computing power and time, though, because astrophysicists might need to run thousands of simulations, tweaking different parameters, to determine which is the most likely real-world scenario.

The neural network was able to run simulations in this new universe just as it had in the 8,000-simulation dataset it had used...
