CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
Of course it is all the whole case is about. Just a little story: weeks after the FN case was exposed, there was a French Bridge competition (Finale Nationale d'Interclubs) whose participants included the Z team and some prominent local teams. One would expect that Mr Z would step ...
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
Just shameful and very bad for bridge image. I am told that a Facebook post showed the Monaco federation rejoiced at such news...How long before FN join the Z team again ?
Boosting a Bridge Artificial Intelligence
Mike, please read the article and you will understand that when very few simulations are run (as is the case for Wbridge5 and its competitors), the choice of the seed does matter and it is proved empirically in the paper. You may think that the paper is not scientific, then ...

Boosting a Bridge Artificial Intelligence
I agree with Michal's comment and one of the co-authors of the 2 papers he quotes is Olivier Teytaud, a renowned French AI researcher whose works have been instrumental in solving the game of GO. As he is also co-author of the paper about bridge "Boosting a Bridge AI ...
