Rock-Paper-Scissors Robot Wins and Wins and Wins
Those fun guys at the University of Tokyo have done it again. They’ve taken the mystery out of that decision game – Rock, Paper Scissors!
As you watch the video, be aware that the computer’s video camera is looking at microseconds and making its decision on how the human’s hand is on its way to a rock, paper or scissors. It may even know what you’re going to do before you do.
I wonder if the chicken that wins tic-tac-toe at county fairs uses the same speedy eyesight.
Our only hope is the great decision game from The Big Bang Theory -“Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock.”
I suppose the computer can be re-programmed to include those moves, too. I bow to our new overlords.
