Re: A.I. is still hard.
The only difference between what these instructions do and what I was doing back in 1998 is that it's assembler. I had to use rather larger amounts of code to accomplish the same results, right down to the training of the beast. That this is found 'hard' has far more to do with the methods of teaching this subject area, which hasn't changed much at all over the last couple of decades. Just quicker to the same results.
What will be interesting is to see if they allow non-linearity in the model. That's what I was doing back then. Linear is child's play.
