Comment Someone's using terms wrong (Score 1) 64

Meta's AI recognizes authors and citations between papers so it can surface the most important research instead of just what has the best SEO.

That's literally the definition of SEO. All they're saying is that their algorithm is slightly different from Google's. Though considering how closely Google guards the details of theirs, it's hard to say how Meta will actually be different. And if this takes off, how long before people start gaming the Meta algorithm?

You have never done any game development, it's obvious.

The step from single-player game to multiplayer game is not a simple upgrade, it's a complete shift in everything. It requires a completely different approach, not a refined version of the same approach.

In any non-trivial multiplayer game, the interactions between all the players matter, and the complexity of those is subject to combinatorial explosion. Poker being a relatively low-interaction game will not make this as bad as some others, but beating one person and beating a table of people is not the same system with a little more cycles, it quite possibly requires a different approach altogether.

It will be interesting to see the jump happen, but it is a jump, not a step.

AI beating humans at a game is merely a beta test. The real application will feed unending greed, which will never die.

Greed is a game.
