Eureqa Uses Data to Calculate Equations

Eureqa, developed by the Computational Synthesis Lab at Cornell University, is a descendant of the starfish robot that was able to repair itself. This artificial intelligence program examines any data on a spreadsheet, then suggests equations to fit them. Amazingly enough, it calculated some of Newton's equations in mere hours rather than years. Head of the team, Dr. Hod Lipson, hopes to use it for figuring out interactions between proteins, genomes and cell signals in mathematical terms. By the way, Cornell has generously offered Eureqa in the form of a free download.
