Superdeterminism is one wild conjecture which is an alternative to the standard quantum mechanical interpretation and preserves local realism
Superdeterminism seems to be too much of a stretch. If experimental results are pre decided it simply renders the experiments useless.
Is there any alternative in the academia where something like minimal determinism is discussed? Like just the minimal amount of determinism needed to retain local realism.
For eg: In the classic Bell's test, if the entangled electron pair generator knows the direction of measurement of spin beforehand for even one of the electrons while generating the entangled pair of electrons, hidden variable theory can violate Bell inequality. Instead of the entire system being superdeterministic, only one pair of entangled electron pair generator and electron spin detectors are determined.
