Rage Against the Machine

Think you own your rock-paper-scissors opponents?  Want to test your organic intelligence against artificial intelligence?  If you answered yes, then go to the NYTimes AI RPS game.  It’s the perfect break from studying, preparing tax returns, or writing exams.  There are two levels, Novice and Veteran.  I played 19 rounds against each, won more than I lost, and quit while I was ahead.  That’s better than my historical record against my wife.  Whenever we play, usually best out of seven to decide something like who brings out the trash in sub-zero weather, she wins–by one.  It drives me nuts.
