Default Poker and reasoning.

I've recently started playing online poker after an absence of ten years and was pleasantly surprised to see what had taken place during that interim.

Here are two links that are worth a look.

Regarding poker, taking a quick look at some of the leader boards and the wins garnered by some of these players makes it easy to understand why good reasoning is mathematical and why an appreciation of probability in all imaginable contexts is important...not just in the tawdry world of gambling but also in the rarefied domain of quantum physics. In my opinion, slowly but surely, artificial intelligence will become self-aware (the singularity) as a quantum system and become a professional gambler.
