Future of Backgammon
Though many gamblers fear from unknowingly competing against programs equipped with Artificial Intelligence, the chance for it to happen in the near future is very low. It would take years for researchers to develop the AI they dream of at night, that's more years in the lab for the guys from MIT.
Current backgammon games are not sufficient for professional players but for the average gamer they are more than enough. There are many places on the Web where you can get these games. Download one and start practicing, who knows, maybe one day it would come in handy while competing against a new generation backgammon programs.
