Become a tester of new AI poker training software

Staňte se testerem moderního AI výukového sw.
Až dosud je považován za jedničku v oblasti treningového softwaru program "Poker Academy", který je postaven (údajně) na licencovaném AI systému University of Alberta. Není vyloučeno, že Poker Academy vyroste rovnocený konkurent v podobě nového programu "Holy Grail of Poker" (www.holygrailofpoker.com ). První dílčí benchmarky to potvrzují. Holy Grail je postaven plně na principu umělé inteligence ( AI - Artificial Intelligence ). Jak je AI - v kontextu sw pro poker -   definována, se dozvíte ve FAQ souboru k programu. Cituji z něho část věnovanou tomu jak AI pracuje:
How does the artificial intelligence work?
The Holy Grail of Poker is unique in that it uses most forms of artificial intelligence (e.g., neural networks, Bayesian probability theory, categorization trees, game theory, fuzzy logic, and Monte Carlo simulation). Basically, for any decision, the program simulates thousands of hands. Then it quantifies the value of each (i.e., the expected value of each decision). For example, let’s say the program is evaluating a bet (vs. check) on the flop against one opponent who has checked to us (i.e., a single decision).

The program will deal your opponent a hand according to the probability that he holds each possible hand (which is based on his position, the statistics the program has about the way this player plays, his actions preflop and on the flop if any, etc.).
Then the program assumes that it bets.
Then it predicts how the opponent will respond based on the hand he has been dealt, the strength of that hand given the community cards, what your opponent thinks you have based on your actions and your statistical profile, the way the opponent plays on the flop, the vulnerability of his hand, the number of outs his hand has to improve, etc.
Then the program deals a turn card after the flop action is complete and continues this approach until the hand is over and there is a winner.
The program records how much it won or lost based on betting. Then with the same cards (i.e., opponent and community cards), it checks and records how much checking earned.
Then it starts over and does this about a thousand more times to calculate an average value for each action (i.e., expected value)."
