At low energies, the microscopic characteristics and changes of physical systems as viewed at different distance scales are described by universal scale invariant properties investigated by the Renormalization Group (RG) apparatus, an efficient tool used to deal with scaling problems in effective field theories. We employ an information-theoretic approach in a deep learning setup by introducing an artificial neural network algorithm to map and identify new physical degrees of freedom. Using deep learning methods mapped to a genuine field theory, we develop a mechanism capable to identify relevant degrees of freedom and induce scale invariance without prior knowledge about a system. We show that deep learning algorithms that use an RG-like scheme to learn relevant features from data could help to understand the nature of the holographic entanglement entropy and the holographic principle in context of the AdS/CFT correspondence.
