the robots rise up!
here's a story about how people are trying to design software "bots" that can play on-line poker. the story mentions kasparov losing to deep blue, as well as the invention of backgammon bots that have changed 2000 years of human backgammon strategy. i can vouch for the superiority of backgammon software. i have a program called GNU backgammon on my computer and i can barely beat it on the easiest setting. when i ratchet that thing up to it's toughest level, it absolutely destroys my petty little human brain.
