Fwd: [CrackMonkey] huge-ass palindromes, with PYTHON
- seeing that this list has been rather quiet lately, i figured this
might be interesting.
shlomi, this mail does *not* constitute a challenge to write the code
in perl or haskell, nor to add palindrome support to freecell solver
or check that the locking order in the FCFS lock is palindromatic.
[sorry, couldn't resist ;)]
dont forget to check out the rest of norvig's site - pretty
interesting papers there.

A pity it doesn't make any sense.

If you get your hands on it, I challenge you to write a General
Problem Solver in that new dialect of Perl of yours ;-)

meant by "General Problem"?

basically GPS was the vision (back in the 50ies) of a program that
would be able to solve any problem that could be described in terms of
means-ends analysis (anyone up on Aristotle here? How many geeks with
classical education are there on hackers-il? I know I am not one of
them [sigh]). The vision never materialized, of course, which is
probably one of the major reason AI is such a dirty word, but the
research in abstraction of problem solving from particular problems
was not useless.
Norvig develops several version of GPS in his book. He has other fun
stuff in it, like the famous Eliza (shrink simulator, I never looked
into the emacs doctor-mode to check whether it is related), an algebra
word-problem solver, a symbolic math program (sort of simplified
Macsyma). I had fun reading it.
Btw, Shlomi, I hope it's clear I was (to some extent) pulling your
leg, since you seem to be the most excitable... ;-)

If it aint't broken it hasn't got enough features yet.
