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.

New Super Mario Brothers for the Wii was big on multiplayer both co-op or in my case usually one good player and a bunch of others flailing about. If you watch some of the in-game videos you can see great examples of co-op working out with Yoshi's passing a player around and some pretty amazing feats pulled off.

Then plug it in - will it charge? On some of my older HTC phones I would turn them off when I charged them when I had some place to be because it was significantly faster.

Then, sometime during all of this, install a non-standard ROM. I've used Cyanogen Mod and Fresh Evo in the past, I'm sure there's a non-Samsung ROM you could put on the thing. That way you have plenty of opportunity to have the thing explode on your own terms.

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?
