Jul 21, 2014

When the singularity finally hits and artificial intelligence takes over everything, at least we know some of the robots will know how to have a good time — like this Connect Four-playing bot, programmed by MIT student Patrick McCabe.

Users can choose between four levels of difficulty and can even ask for a hint if needed. Head over to McCabe's website for a detailed breakdown of how the machine works. In the meantime, watch here as the bot beats McCabe in the first round -- and even taunts him a little bit before clinching the game.
