Dr. Fill Loses to Humans

Recent win of a man over a machine has once again confirmed that it is human only that has made machine and machine stands no big and better than any human brain.

Recently an American Crossword Puzzle Tournament was held in New York City, where a man versus machine competition also took place. The winner of the competition was obviously human brain with 140 humans performing better than a computer program, which was especially designed to solve the mind-bending puzzles throughout the competition.

The most intelligent brain that can easily construct a science to figure out answer to any crossword puzzle is of none other than the artificial intelligent expert Mr. Matt Ginsberg, who is in the job of constructing new puzzles everyday for the New York Times.

Mr. Ginsberg has actually created a software algorithm, which he thinks, will help him to make himself a better solver of the puzzles. The newest program has been named as Dr. Fill, which aims to thoroughly understand the human writing style deeply and then crunch it into a bunch of 0's and 1's.

While describing about Dr. Fill, Ginsberg said that “its understanding of the constraints that come from the crossing words is much stronger, and it’s doing much more sophisticated numerical analyses.”

Though only humans can participate in the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament that was recently held in Brooklyn, New York, Ginsberg of On Time Systems noticed the tournament to be the best way to test Dr. Fill crossword solver for which, he for the first time put it to the test and Dr. Fill unfortunately scored badly compared to the humans, , according to a report in the New York Times.
