Can a computer be self-taught or self-learning? Can it learn simulation of human intelligence? Can your Computer Chess Game learn my bad habits, my famous chess moves and then, cheat me out of the glory of winning?

Yeah it can.

In purchased a “State of the Art” Radio Shack electronic chess set, the salesman forgot to tell me one crucial issue “it cheats” And know where did I read it in the instructions, nobody at the store warned me, they should have said, “You will never beat that Machine.”


Can my Computer Chess Game Cheat on me?

At the store, the chess game intrigued with the advanced technology, you can play with a person, or if there’s no one around, you can play the computer as your opponent. You move your man, and then the computer tells you where you have to put its “computer chessman.”

How hard could it be? A warm-blooded person programmed the chess set so it would be the same as having an ordinary 2-hour chess game with a good buddy of yours.

There were 1 to 10 levels. 1st level, piece of cake and as it goes up, the levels from there. The higher up, the more thought you have to put in the game, “Just Like the Real Deal” But there is something wrong with this game!

 I noticed when I was close to winning; funny things start to happen.

When I got lucky enough to get it in check, the game would turn off. “BUT I HAD IT IN CHECK!”  I’m thinking … did I hit the wrong button? Did somebody disconnect the power?

I had that stupid chess game in check! “and dumb me,” it’s still didn’t dawn on me!

The few times I had my electronic opponent in check, I noticed that it was the computerized chess game going tilt, shutting down. “This game board computer it’s cheating”  “It didn’t like to lose.”

I’d almost go so far as to say, “It was learning my moves, my habits,” it was on to me like a wet blanket.

That couldn’t be right; it’s only a stupid computerized chess game. Eh!

Can my Computer Chess Game Cheat on me?

But fast forward to today, the new computers are programmed to learn your habits, “making things better for the consumer,” they say.

It’s got a real name attached like … “Artificial Intelligence.”

Go online (www) and look up Artificial Intelligence, and you will find it in its infancy stage, but it’s out there. Some computers, and probably yours, is watching you, telling all those marketers what your bad habits are!

Squealing on you, telling everybody in the world, this is what I have been looking up, and the next time you go on the web, (funny how it happens), up comes everything you’ve been inquiring about for the last week.” The industry calls them COOKIES”  Is that a good thing or bad thing,  you be the judge.

My point would be if you use that same technology in different applications, you could get entirely different results, as I wrote in my post “The Other Room.”

It’ll be a scary time when these “machines” get smarter than you, and they will keep on learning.  And our brains will get more and more pickled from not being used.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the simulation of human intelligence in machines programmed to think like humans and mimic their actions. The term may also be applied to any device that exhibits traits associated with a human mind, such as learning and problem-solving.

For example, speech recognition, problem-solving, learning and planning. The computer will assist us in finding information, getting directions, sending messages and make voice calls. It will open applications and add events to the calendar. This is all standard stuff today.


Siri uses machine-learning technology to get smarter and capable-to-understand natural language questions and requests. It is undoubtedly one of the most iconic examples of machine learning abilities of gadgets.


Tesla The car has not only been able to achieve many accolades goals but also features like self-driving, predictive capabilities, and absolute technological innovation, all computer-oriented. The car is getting smarter day by day through over the air updates. Tesla is one you need in your garage.


Netflix Is a widely popular content-on-demand service uses predictive technology to offer recommendations based on consumers’ reactions, interests, choices, and behavior. The technology examines several records to recommend movies based on your previous liking and responses.

And the list goes on and on. Computers learn your habits, and adjust their thinking to yours, learn more at this LINK.

Remembrance Day Must See Movies

Remembrance Day Lest we Forget

Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day is (November 11)  it is a day we honored our Fallen, our brothers in arms for all their sacrifices.

TV documentaries, war movies are as close as many of us will see about the horrors of war, and in most cases, it all has to do with our side and what our Armed Forces have been through.


But I have to wonder with all these conflicts, there is another side that’s going through the same emotions,  through the same hell as our Canadian soldiers.  You read the daily news about North Korea and all these other hot spots in the world and it is a constant reminder that wars will not go away. Technology rapidly changes but our mentality, well ……   IT JUST DOESN’T.

So here I sit, watching Remembrance Day Must-See Movies

So here I sit, not physically well today, so I’m watching a couple of old war flicks as a reminder of the fallen. Some not so publicized and interesting movies from across the pond, some you might not have ever seen before. Very doubtful these movies were ever made in Hollywood; they portray ordinary people, thrown into a conflict that they have no control over, these people have the same 24 hrs, 7 days a week, they have families that love them, they are fathers, mothers. They hurt the same way as you and me. So I picked these movies to remind me that there is nothing glamorous about the war on either side and I think these movies portray just that. There is a message to be learned in some of these films.

Remembrance Day November 11, we should reflect on all the fallen.

I had to share these titles with anybody interested in WW2 war stories and “What happened on the other side.”
