Liquid neural networks use a mathematical formulation that is less computationally expensive and stabilizes neurons during training.

The key to Liquid Neural Networks’ efficiency lies in their use of dynamically adjustable differential equations, which allows them to adapt to new situations after training, a capability not found in typical neural networks.

In the current artificial intelligence (AI) landscape, the buzz around large language models (LLMs) has led to a race toward creating increasingly larger neural networks. However, not every application can support the computational and memory demands of very large deep learning models. 

The constraints of these environments have led to some interesting research directions. Liquid neural networks, a novel type of deep learning architecture developed by researchers at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at MIT (CSAIL), offer a compact, adaptable and efficient solution to certain AI problems. These networks are designed to address some of the inherent challenges of traditional deep learning models.

Liquid neural networks can spur new innovations in AI and are particularly exciting in areas where traditional deep learning models struggle, such as robotics and self-driving cars.
