This is very interesting.

The analogous problem in backgammon is to determine what a "difficult" decision for a human being is. Until now I've thought that this was too hard to program into GNU, but maybe it isn't. Perhaps it doesn't take that much hand-marked data to train the AI what sort of decisions are hard for a human and what sorts aren't. Someone ought to try this.

It's a little surprising to me that the next publisher went back to the old way...unless you're saying that they acquired the rights only to the Scrabble name, and not the database of hand-crafted ratings that you built?
