Knowing that mathematicians often use (used?) yarn to display mathematical principles in, e.g., topology, this is interesting.

Maybe we can feed an ML algorithm with their math, and the models, and see what comes up? Just for the fun of it?

Oh, yes, there are lots and lots of geeky ravellers, whether the geekness is in their work, their yarn, or both. Come to the yarn side. It’s awesome.
