The incredible moment a man solves a Rubik's cube in less than FIVE SECONDS to set a new world record (as the previous champion sits next to him and grins through gritted teeth) Feliks Zemdegs, 20, solved the famous 1980s toy in just 4.73 seconds Previous world record set by Mats Valk, 20, who is sitting next to Mr Zemdegs Mr Zemdegs got ten seconds to inspect the Rubik's cube before he has to solve it Feliks Zemdegs, 20, solved the famous 1980s toy in just 4.73 seconds Mr Zemdegs got ten seconds to inspect the Rubik's cube before he has to solve it His hands move so fast the camera struggles to pick up his finger movements. He solves the puzzle in just 4.73 seconds. The previous world record was set by Mats Valk, 20, (right) is sat next to Mr Zemdegs as he breaks his record.

AI teaches itself to complete the Rubik's cube in just 20 MOVES

Daily Mail - Science & tech

A deep-learning algorithm has been developed which can solve the Rubik's cube faster than any human can. It never fails to complete the puzzle, with a 100 per cent success rate and managing it in around 20 moves. Humans can beat the AI's mark of 18 seconds, the world record is around four seconds, but it is far more inefficient and people often require around 50 moves. It was created by University of California Irvine and can be tried out here. Given an unsolved cube, the machine must decide whether a specific move is an improvement on the existing configuration.


Rubik s Cube records broken in 4.59 seconds

Daily Mail - Science & tech

A 23-year-old'professional speedcuber' has set a new world record by completing a Rubik's Cube in just 4.59 seconds. Korean SeungBeom Cho solved the 3D puzzle in his first round at the World Cube Association's ChicaGhosts 2017 event in Chicago, smashing his previous personal best of 6.54 seconds. Footage of Mr Cho's attempt shows him given just a few seconds to examine the cube before starting, completing it just moments later. A series of UK records have been broken by quick-fingered Rubik's Cube solvers at the UK championships held in Stevenage, Hertfordshire on Sunday. Competitors as young as seven tackled the notoriously tricky cubes one-handed, blindfolded and even with their feet in a bid to become the top gamers of the weekend.


[Question] CNTK. Evaluate performance with code? • /r/MachineLearning

@machinelearnbot

In an attempt to learn I'm trying to train a neural network to solve rubiks cube. My idea was to present a state for the network and let him choose next move. Scoring simple by how many same colors on each side he manages to do. The problem here is that I can't pregenerate training data. Sure I can generate the first state but in order to evaluate the performance I actually need to simulate the cube.
