Rock-Paper-Scissors: You versus the Computer

Computers mimic human reasoning by building on simple rules and 
statistical averages. 

Test your strategy against the computer in this rock-paper-scissors game 
illustrating basic artificial intelligence. 

Choose from two different modes: novice, where the computer learns to 
play from scratch, and veteran, where the computer pits over 200,000 
rounds of previous experience against you. 

A truly random game of rock-paper-scissors would result in a statistical 
tie with each player winning, tying, and losing one-third of the time. 
However, people are not truly random and thus can be studied and 

While this computer won't win all rounds, over time it can exploit a 
person's tendencies and patterns to gain an advantage over its opponent.
