Submission Machine learning and game theory

Bill_s16 writes: Space War reports in "Game Theoretic Machine Learning Methods Can Help Explain Long Periods Of Conflict" on a study in PLOS Computational Biology that tends to deemphasize individual influence on instigating fights and asserts that history carrying forward from past conflicts may be more influential. In other words...grudges. And perhaps a step along the path toward something akin to an approximation of Asimov's Psychohistory.

There was a story in wired.com a while ago, about a man getting prosecuted in the US for having a large collection of anime/hentai comics. Some of them had schoolgirls/tentacles in them. I'd search for it for you, but I don't want to spoil my pristine search keyword history.

I'm sure it's not just the only case like that. Drawings are illegal, so please be aware of that.
