We revisit some classic questions in game theory, such the behavior of multiplicative weights updates (and other learning dynamics) in zero-sum and potential games. We establish new and exciting connections with the work of Poincaré on celestial mechanics, the latest developments in artificial intelligence (such as understanding Generative Adversarial Networks) as well as with chaos theory. A host of new open questions emerges.
