Galton Machines or Bean Machines
« on: February 24, 2017, 03:25:07 am »
We've all probably seen something like this. You release a number of balls into a pin board and see where they fall. Most of them will fall around the middle.

I was thinking about modelling a complex system and using it to predict things. We have mentioned this previously. So a question - I'm sure most of us would be happy to bet that most of the balls would fall in the middle, but then how keen are you to bet on where a single ball might land ?

Does anyone think that an AI could be made to predict where one ball might fall better than we could ?
