The interpretations of quantum physics are a collection of attempts of many physicists to try and make quantum physics make sense. The measurement problem and entanglement are notions that are confusing to us humans and people puzzle over questions like: Is the wave function real or just mathematics? What does a subatomic particle really look like? What is particle-wave duality really? That is where the interpretations of quantum physics come in. This is my attempt to cover the main ones.

Some summaries of the different interpretations:
Wikipedia has a nice table https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interpretations_of_quantum_mechanics
This is a really good one for more detail by Peter J. Lewis https://www.iep.utm.edu/int-qm/
I would also recommend the book ‘Beyond Weird’ by Philip Ball
