Yesterday at work I was reading about Test Driven Development and followed a link to an article describing a Python program to solve sudoku. I had hoped it would show me some new strategies for solving the puzzles, but in the end it just tries out possibilities until it finds the one that works.
However, I wanted to respond to this:
As computer security expert Ben Laurie has stated, Sudoku is “a denial of service attack on human intellect”.
Perhaps in the same way that exercise weights are a DoS attack on human muscles. But unlike machines, with humans it’s “use it or lose it.”
