About The Contest
The first ever Olympiad of Misguided Geeks contest at Worse Than Failure (or OMGWTF for short) is a new kind of programming contest. Readers are invited to be creative with devising a calculator with the craziest code they can write. One lucky and potentially insane winner will get either a brand new MacBook Pro or comparable Sony VAIO laptop.
Entry #100159: neuralator
by troy d. straszheim
The happy thing about the neuralator is that it calculates the entire test set correctly... but only the test set. At least, I was unable to find anything outside of the test set that it calculates correctly; the bug count is essentially infinite. And it achieves this stunning feat without actually mentioning even a single one of the test cases in the code.... it all happens inside the trained multilayer feedforward neural network that is the <<< Brain of the Neuralator >>>.
