Re: Chess (Flash Version)Hi Jane; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20100318 13:42:45
Re: Chess (Flash Version)That is about as good as I can get it with limited computing power. A rewrite in Actionscript could give it 10x the speed and allow deeper thinking.

Re: Chess (Flash Version)Not knocking it Maths, it plays better than mine did.
Sorry, MIF for this incredibly off the wall attempt at a compliment. It does sound like a knock. I was trying to make a point to Jane and tripped over my own tongue doing it. I didn't want to sound like I was rebuking her statement and started fence straddling. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5 20100318 16:41:29

Re: Chess (Flash Version)So ... don't be shy ... tell me about the AI. I was once a member of the AAAI, y'know. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #8 20100319 02:16:26

Well, for a start, you could teach your program #9 20100319 07:21:50
Re: Chess (Flash Version)Thanks, Jane. I can play with settings like that ... but it may open up other avenues for savvy humans "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #10 20100320 12:46:41
