Although lengthy, (you can skip to 6:10 to see it in action) I have loved this video by Tom Murphy on teaching a computer to play classic NES games using a piece of software he named PlayFun. Incredible how the computer figures out how to exploit bugs in the game to its advantage.
This is an explanation and demo of software I wrote that learns how to play a Nintendo Entertainment System game and then automatically plays it. This is real.
And yes, this paper was published on April 1st, so it does make you wonder that despite his claims (and the source code being available) that this is real, something else is at play.
