K. S. Kyosuke, We don't know how humans solve problems

True, it's one of the mysteries of the universe. If only I could sneak into a university and observe math students solving problems, then maybe I could write a program that mimics the process to solve my problem. Alas, this is too a radical an idea for sure. :-p

so how can we know anything about the fidelity of so-called AI?

What the hell is "fidelity of AI"?

For example, how does a human look at a chess board and evaluate positions to determine the next move? Nobody knows. Computers do an exhaustive search of available moves to a certain depth, which humans are incapable of, so that disproves your claim straight off.

That's a non sequitur right there.

We have this:

AT&T To Cough Up $88 Million For 'Cramming' Mobile Customer Bills

And this:

Through the FTC's refund program, nearly 2.5 million current ATT customers will receive a credit on their bill within the next 75 days, and more than 300,000 former customers will receive a check.

So, $88000000/(2500000+300000) = $31.43. Thanks guys, I'll try not to spend it all in one place.

I've already considered the possibility of search-driven algorithm and data structure selection for a certain system I have in mind. After all, why try a large (combinatorially exploding) number of options/programming decisions manually when they can be tried and scored automatically?
