Where will it end?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is surpassing human intelligence in test after test.
We've been getting upstaged for decades.
To trace the origins of AI's progress you have to go back to Deep Blue, a supercomputer that's whipped every chess master in the world since 1989.
Since then AI has been successful at understanding human speech, competing at other high level strategic game systems like Poker, self-driving cars, and interpreting complex data.
Poker will never be the same now that AI has conquered four of the world's best poker pros last January. The new player in town is called Lengpudashi, an artificial intelligence program.
That got me thinking about putting Trump up against Lengpudashi. After all, he's a disruptor. Lies, bluffs, and cheating have made him rich.
Even though Lengpudashi understands the concept of bluffing - not by mimicking successful poker players, but from game theory - I can't help wondering if Stump would present a new challenge.
Quick. Name a more successful con man than Donny. Ain't going to happen. He bluffed his way to the presidency. His lies are blatant bluffs meant to distract from reality.
AI is all about reality and logic. Still, I doubt if there's a successful algorithm available to deal with Chump.
As far as I can tell, Lengpudashi's programmers didn't consider cheating as part of it's arsenal. Cheat is Rump's middle name.
After three wives he's perfected the art. Trust me, if there's a way to cheat the program Donny Little Hands will find it. And, if he does lose, that won't be the end of it.
Hump will tweet to the world that not only did the program cheat him, he'll claim it's programmers voted for Hillary Clinton!
Time for me to walk on down the road...
