Funny. I was just contemplating that movie a day or so ago.

You know, they always talk about AI as if it were intelligence that was involved. Like a really smart person.

But no, most people aren't super clever. Artificial Stupidity is all that is needed to pass the Turing Test. Being able to discourse on Plato and Sanskrit doesn't make you a normal human. Being able to be Homer Simpson is a difficult enough test for a computer.

Being able to out-think an AI opponent in a game is an attraction for me. It's got to be more than strength or randomness to be a challenge. Working out the strategy being used, coming up with a counter, and implementing the plan. That's what makes a good solo game for me.

Uh, not that I spend a lot of time playing games, nowadays.
