So the key is not for you to figure out how to program that series of movements but to find a way to create an algorithm that can learn through trial and error.
I agree. That is indeed the key.

I would like to add that an algorithm to learn a well defined game with objectively defined feedback is trivial compared to the unbounded domain represented by that video you posted. Learning how to win a specific game is one thing, but learning how to learn would seem to be a whole other magnitude of difficulty. And I will stand by that assessment right up to the moment someone ignores those perceived "limitations" and does it anyway. :D

That's a bit cutesy-poo for you, Doc. Going soft in your old age?
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

It's the cute cat pictures thread after all. No such thing here as 'too cute'.
