Comment Re:Still not a sport, try as you may.. (Score 2) 351

I guarantee that if I'm at the bar watching a White Sox game, and somebody turns it off in favor of some video game, there's going to be hell to pay.

If the video game supporters outnumber the 'real sport' supporters, I would think not... Instead of a game of who can be the smartest*, you prefer a sport where the luckiest win first and the best win second. * Where smartest here means the one who can outsmart the opponent, is better at strategy and can think faster.

No built in mechanism no, but that is where genetic algorithms comes in. Say one would build this into a cell, that could multiply, and then you designed a virus that only let those you want to survive which you can kill by another chemical, then you would have a very cheap platform that can learn anything. Just make a tank of food, put a single of these cells in it. Wait a little, put some viruses in, wait a little, put some virus killer in and repeat.
