Plant Root Networks Beat Machine Learning

Plant roots placed in layered networks outperformed deep learning networks for pattern finding abilities in large data sets.


Machine Learning currently only models networks by connectivity and strength of connection (a real number). Plant networks rely are many other factors, which significantly enhance performance.


In the near future, we should either be relying on plant root networks and brain organoids (since they definitely outperform machine learning) or we should model more relevant factors from these organic networks.
