Do you want a Uxbridge English Dictionary definition?

Depend. Opposite of the shallow end

I have seen this thread (original post) in queue, but I didn't approve it, it seemd quite bot-ish to me, but I also didn't delete it, and I let other mod to take the responsibility . It still looks botish, and not related to anything mathish.

Wasn't the OP inquiring about the "Reliability, Confidence" numbers on the CPU page ?

In that case a search on the forum could have given him an answer :

(Can't see immediately how I can multiquote from two separate windows.)

This rudimentary form of AI can be traced all the back to ELIZA.

Yeah, he appears with 5 posts, but there are only 4 posts here, which made us search for the fifth, and found a similar post in a different thread, where he just replied "smart definition" where it was nobody talking about any definition. Bot for sure, and a silly one.
