The experimental evidence appears to be in league with Georg Cantor who I mentioned earlier.
In Cantors case he believed his mathematical theories might define "god's" set theory.
I had the idea that there might be a real export function that could be used by artificial intelligence in a quantum computing environment but when I searched all I got was economic links.

China might be ahead of us, according to this source they beat Gauss.

Scroll to 24:56: "it turns out the minimal language for this ................ may be a single line of "orphan" code".

Worth listening to the entire podcast which can be found here:

It's a great read, but this is still a work in progress - i.e. a research project. Wolfram himself says that the entire idea may crash and burn.

I think declaring that this work is the definitive pathway to a fundamental theory is overstating the case. It's a great piece of work but Wolfram isn't the first in this line of thinking. Other scientists have also worked on cellular automata - Gerard 't Hooft comes to mind:

The Cellular Automaton Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics

There are a couple of simulators out there where you can play around with "Rule 30".

This is just a Pseudo random number generator that produces results that fall far short of genuine Quantum random sources.
Apparently they expect only a few students would be motivated to collect using a nanosecond parity sampling scheme.
Think about what the Coronavirus means to you assignment the rest.
