tekgoblin writes " It looks like the New York Times has created a game that uses artificial intelligence to outsmart you. It uses a simple game called Rock, Paper, Scissors which is pretty much known by everyone on the planet by now. The computer tries to mimic human reasoning by building on simple rules and statistical averages. So based on the rules of the game and your previous moves, the computer tries to make predictions on your next move. The game has 2 modes, the first being Novice where the computer learns the game from scratch, and veteran where the computer has experience of over 200,000 rounds of previous experience."

It seems if you lose, it's best to switch it up. The computer predicts that the player predicts that their opponent will deviate from their last throw on a win, therefore the computer keeps the same throw to throw you off. I AM 1337 SENTENCE CONSTRUCTOR!
