The Theory behind TheoryMine
Journal article, 2015

The Theory Mine novelty gift company sells the rights to name novel mathematical theorems. The technology is made up of a pipeline of four computer systems that generates recursive theories, then speculates conjectures in those theories and proves the conjectures. All stages of the theorem discovery and proof processes are completely automatic. The process guarantees large numbers of sound, novel theorems of some intrinsic merit.
