Two novel methods for calculating quark propagators in lattice QCD will be presented, both of which are inspired from information theory. They aim to extract as much information as possible from the lattice simulations with minimal computational overhead. Observations on the density of Gribov ambiguities in pure Euclidean SU(3) Yang-Mills will be shown, which are in agreement with the Gribov-Zwanziger scenario. Finally, results from 4-point, hadronic (sigma meson) calculations will be presented.
