Eureqa is a desktop software for Symbolic Regression that left the market. Here we will present an alternative called TuringBot, a program similar to Eureqa that uses Simulated Annealing to discover formulas from data.

Read MoreIntroduced in 2009, the Eureqa software gained great popularity with the promise that it could potentially be used to derive new physical laws from empirical data in an automatic way. Details of this reasoning can be found in the original paper, called Distilling Free-Form Natural Laws from Experimental Data.

Read MoreIn order to find an equation from a list of values, a special technique called symbolic regression must be used. The idea is to search over the space of all possible mathematical formulas for the ones with the greatest accuracy, while trying to keep those formulas as simple as possible.
