Since we have a bunch of poker players and a bunch of Canadians on CoBF, this might be interesting:


AI wins poker tournament: https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2017/01/robot-knows-when-to-hold-em-wins-huge-in-poker-tournament/

Most articles don't mention this, but currently poker AI can handle only one-vs-one play. It cannot handle one-vs-many play yet.


U Alberta poker research ( http://poker.cs.ualberta.ca/ https://arxiv.org/pdf/1701.01724v2.pdf ) promises to run on laptop (vs. CMU supercomputer above) and still win.


Disclaimer: I am not a poker player and not an expert in the research above.

This is actually highly impressive. The bot (computer program) managed to beat 4 of the best human 1-on-1 poker players on the world by quite a big margin over a large sample size of hands played. During the last version of this match up the human team easily beat the bot, but they mentioned the program had improved significantly this time around. As the 'holy grail' in poker is to approach a game theory optimal (GTO) strategy raw computing power which learns by playing itself many times over can help speed up this process. (fun fact: some of the best players have actually hired programmers / servers in order to build custom software to help them solve the game)

In general the spelling checking/correction state of the art is likely way better than what you get, especially in a browser editor.

However, there's likely hundreds of "spell checker" codebases in the world and probably none (well maybe 1-2) use anything close to latest technology. If I had to guess, some mobile typing apps should have close to latest technology, but I can't say much more.
