Can machine learning be a useful tool for research mathematicians? In this talk we discuss the results of our recent Nature paper, where we work together with top mathematicians to use machine learning to discover and prove a new connection in topology, and conjecture a resolution to a 50-year problem in representation theory. We believe that there is a lot of low hanging fruit to be found by working together with pure mathematicians to make new discoveries.
