Online gambling meets artificial intelligence, sort of...

Nice story from Marketplace. I particularly liked this quote:
Michael Bowling helped build the best bot. He runs the Computer Poker Research Group at the University of Alberta.

But Bowling doubts that the commercial poker bots that are usually sold for around $80 are any good. Otherwise, why would they be for sale?

Bowling: If you had created a program that could actually win money from other players, would you be selling it to somebody else or would you be using it to win money?
