Neural networks learn combinatorial rules.

In our latest PRL we show that combinatorial metamaterials—think of complicated puzzle pieces fitting together to make desired shapes—can be classified efficiently and accurately by neural networks. This is surprising, since these desired shapes occur only for very few specific designs and are sensitive to even a single puzzle piece changing.
