Software behaviour

This article’s top highlight has had me thinking:nnSoftware is simply the encoding of human thought, and as such has an almost unbounded design space.nnI disagree with “simply”, if it means “merely/just/straightforwardly/plainly”.nYes, software behaviour tends to be predetermined by humans.nBut look at AlphaGo: It’s behaviour was not predetermined.nMove 37 was in nobody’s mind before it happened and changed how human Go mastersnthink about Go.
