Thermodynamic models boost AI Planning Ability?

Thermodynamics is awesome!  If you want to know how the universe works, thermodynamics is an essential piece of the puzzle.

Check this Harvard AI software that applies entropy to planning.  Entropy as intelligence?

For another eye opener – check this sick video on autocatalysis and think about the business cycle, forest fires and other natural systems.
