After another hour, it learned what a boring game Chess is and opened up some cat videos instead.
This kind of stuff is cool and useful but adds don't drink the strong SO kook aid, it's a sham.
This video shows a demonstration of a very elegant method of solving a series of problems that are inherently easier for computers to solve than for our brains to solve, nothing more enothimg less. Imbibing it with some mystical notion of personhood undersells the simplicity of it AND the complexity of actual sentience.
Personhood, sentience: No.
Lateral thinking, structured thinking, unguided thinkin: Yes.
Still hella impressive. I'd argue that "inherently easier for computers to solve" misses the point completely: it's Stockfish that did things the easy-for-computers way, and it got served.
