This is an AI system that at the first level recognizes game-like scenarios in general input data and applies archetypical roles to entities within the scenario and plays the game out determining winners and losers and at the second and higher levels assigns archetypical roles to the winners and losers of games played at the first level and plays games out in infinite regression and derives probabilities for taking actions based on general direction of game wins or losses.

       First, we will need an AI.

       Or even a couple of commas.   

       I have no idea what he's talking about.

       Lemon curry ?

       This is very similar to how when I used to have a job in the 20th century I suggested that we recast the staff as the various characters from the Carry On films.
Ian Tindale, Apr 14 2016
  

       Or it could be like in Kind Hearts and Coronets, with Alec Guinness playing most of the characters

       At least it's not in Other:General …

       Well, I did some searching, but no high ranking military officer with that last name turned up. I probably didn't search enough...
normzone, Apr 14 2016
  

       We can put you in touch with General Failure, Major Fault and Private Dismay if that will help at all.

       Send for Seaman Staines.
MaxwellBuchanan, Apr 14 2016
  

       Is he a mate of Corporal Punishment ?   

       We should also have mentioned that we have the address of Kernel Exception, but it's in hexadecimal.

       I read that entire sentence in a single breath, or something like that.

       So, while I'm writing an email, this program intercepts my keystrokes and uses them to play a game of space invaders in the background?

       It could have been explained more eloquently with more background, examples and punctuation, but I understand the idea.   

       It is an iterative optimization strategy.   

       Take conversation as an example. When you make conversation, you subconsciously put yourself in the shoes of the other person and in how they will understand the message and anticipate how they will respond (and then how you will respond in turn). This requires looking several 'moves ahead' (to use a chess analogy). A failure to do this 'optimization' will result in robotic and unconvincing conversation.   

       By mapping the branching possibilities of an AI task (e.g. conversation) into an iterative 'game', you can efficiently optimize it (by eliminating the unsuccessful game branches) to find the best 'move'.   

       The idea was presumably inspired by the computer that recently beat the world champion in Go.

       And just where are all the Generals ? Someone should make a map.
