The past few weekends have been relatively uneventful. I had a cold for a while but most of the time, I was reading the book Cosmic Jackpot that Shuquan gave me. It was rather interesting and presented various points of view on why the universe seems fit for life but most of the theories presented were highly speculative. My inclinations are in a different direction from the author but without any substantial evidence, I guess it all boils down to personal preference. Perhaps I'll elaborate on this in a future blog entry.
Curious to find out what kind of strategy you have assumed that the human is playing. If it is based on the assumption that players chooses black or white randomly (and that is in fact the best strategy to play if the opponent is playing his best strategy), then the computer cannot do any better than playing randomly.
In my first approach, I assume the human will try to play randomly but fail at it. The assumption is that humans are generally poor at creating random sequences. For example, for a random sequence of 100 trials, it is likely to see 5 consecutive reds or blacks but few humans will play it that way. I am trying to see if I can capitalize on this non-randomness.
