Leipzig Gophers


In 2023 large language models and generative AI captured many minds - fewer know that the official Go repository included code to train a statistical language model (and to respond to prefixes) since Aug 17, 2011, which is based on chapter 3.1 from The Practice of Programming (1999), which in turn took inspiration from Dewdney, A. K. (1989), COMPUTER RECREATIONS. Scientific American, 260(6), 122–125 (the trace continues further to Shannon, 1951 and Markov, 1913)
