AI used to test evolution’s oldest mathematical model

aiusedtotestThe researchers found that different butterfly species act both as model and as mimic, 'borrowing' features from each other and even generating new patterns.

"We can now apply AI in new fields to make discoveries which simply weren't possible before," said lead author Dr. Jennifer Hoyal Cuthill from Cambridge's Department of Earth Sciences. "We wanted to test Müller's theory in the real world: did these species converge on each other's wing patterns and if so how much? We haven't been able to test mimicry across this evolutionary system before because of the difficulty in quantifying how similar two butterflies are."
