### 💥 What’s New in AI: Meta AI New Model can Solve International Math Olympiad Level Problems

Mathematical reasoning is one of the most ambitious goals of the new generation of artificial intelligence (AI) methods. In recent months, OpenAI made important steps in this area by releasing a model that acts as a theorem prover for the Lean math environment. Similarly, DeepMind’s AlphaTensor was able to discover new matrix multiplication algorithms. Just a few days ago, Meta AI showed its contributions to this challenging area of deep learning with the unveiling of HyperTree Proof Search (HTPS), a deep learning model that was able to solve several International Math Olympiad (IMO) problems. This method showcases important capabilities that demonstrate that mathematical reasoning is possible with deep neural networks.
