Re: Evolved algorithms
I don't know much about programming but I drink lots of beer.
The question has been: "Did a non-intelligent process, specifically the AlphaZero chess program, generate new information?"
What would qualify as new information?
You are saying that a program never does anything that it wasn't forced to do by the programmer. That seems right until the program has no boundaries.
