Unprovability comes to machine learning

Just ran across this today. The question of whether a machine learning algorithm can solve a particular problem depends on the Continuum hypothesis. Now THAT's interesting!

The authors give one in the article, as noted in the summary.

This is very interesting imho, despite potentially having no practical application (as is the case with most of set theory).
