Samsung Pay adds in-app coupon search for its anniversary

Engadget

Samsung Pay is celebrating its first year in America by launching a feature couponers would love. The Korean company has teamed up with the owner of Coupons.com to make redeeming discounts much easier. Now, when you link your loyalty card or account with the app, you'll be able to browse all the digital coupons that retailer has to offer within Samsung Pay itself. You can also clip all the coupons you want to use, and they'll automatically be applied when you check out with the app. Besides the nifty new feature for people shopping on a budget, the payment app is now much easier to use with a new device, as well.

A good handheld vacuum can be a lifesaver, but there are a ton of options out there. Not only did we find some that are worth investing in, but the best affordable hand-vac we tested is on sale on Amazon right now. But Amazon has a coupon that will save you an additional $15. In addition to providing great suction (the second-best of every handheld vacuum we tested), the Pivot's biggest selling feature is its 200-degree reach thanks to a pivot joint at the center of the appliance.


Evolving Neural Networks to imax Search * cus

AAAI Conferences

Neural networks were evolved through genetic algorithms to focus minimax search in the game of Othello. At each level of the search tree, the focus networks decide which moves are promising enough to be explored further. The networks effectively hide problem states from minimax based on the knowledge they have evolved about the limitations of minimax and the evaluation function. Focus networks were encoded in markerbased chromosomes and were evolved against a full-width minimax opponent that used the same evaluation function. The networks were able to guide the search away from poor information, resulting in stronger play while examining fewer states. When evolved with a highly sophisticated evaluation function of the Bill program, the system was able to match Bill's performance while only searching a subset of the moves.
