DailyDirt: Computers Like To Sit In Front Of Computers And Play Games All Day, Too

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Artificial intelligence software has been getting better and better over the years at beating humans at their own games. Games like Connect Four and Checkers are already solved, and while we humans might like to point out that there are games like Othello, Go, Diplomacy and Calvinball that still favor human players, it may only be a matter of time before computers outwit us at those games, too. Check out a few more games that algorithms are learning to play better than human brains.

And from the article:

the status of one group can affect that of its neighbors—like a cowboy who points a revolver at another cowboy, only to find himself covered by a rifleman on a roof.

Yeah, Person of Interest did that (it actually involved 4 levels, and the people in question were operatives, not cowboys, but still) in the episode from two weeks ago.

There was no Go involved, but the show is about AIs. Kinda makes you wonder…
