http://vaguery.com/words/fizz-buzz-in-clojush-2
I talk about what people expect from software synthesis and human-written code, and throw shade (as usual) at the notion that artificial systems should be expected to do what people expect. Not because they're bad, but because even researchers' expectations are short-sighted.2018-02-18A few more evolved FizzBuzz Push programs
