Re: Rybka 4 beaten blindfold by neurosurgeon

well i wouldnt judge so quickly (that it is a trick or a fraud); although rare , some savants exist (like 'brainman' Tammet ) or have existed, usually autistic; and such people when recalling things from memory or as 'calculation' result said they just 'saw' the result in their head.

Re: Are chessprogrammers jealaous ?

[quote="bob"] .. the answer to your question is yes. Simple theory would tell you that there are an infinite number of ways to syntactically represent the same semantic behaviour. And even if we quibble about the "infinite" word, you could replace that by "large" and still be standing on pretty soli...

Re: Are chessprogrammers jealaous ?

a few additional comments: [quote="jefk"] ok thx for the reply; yes i see the problem, and i like to go beyond arguments about programmer competence, but enter into software legality, its still about intellectual property rights, {snip..} So the discussion seems to be going in this black&white direc...

A lot of people here are incensed at the idea that Vas took an open source program and used it for commercial profit and it saddens me that you condone this in the name of "progress."
