What are the domains where SVMs are still state-of-the-art?

State-of-the-art is a tough bar, because it's not clear how it should be measured. An alternative criteria, which is akin to state-of-the-art, is to ask when you might prefer to try an SVM. SVMs have ...

Is there any board game where a human can still beat an AI?

For many years, the focus has been on games with perfect information. That is, in Chess and Go both of us are looking at the same board. In something like Poker, you have information that I don't have ...

Can we give a command to an AI and wait for it to do the job without explicitly telling it how to do it?

Normally when you write a program, you are acting like a boss that micromanages the job, telling the workers how to accomplish a task, perhaps without even letting them know what the purpose is. What ...
