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 #100164: Calculator Ann
by Patrick Moroney
This calculator was built to spec. It uses an advanced back propagating artificial neural network to calculate all the answers. Thus the Ann in the name. The calculator does take a while to load as it trains the neural net with a few example equations, but once it has been trained the answers come quickly. I've added the ability for the calculator to show and calculate multiple operations such as '38+56-2' or '1/0+2/0'. The window only clears when you hit the 'C' button or when you hit '=' it will clear and display the answer. This calculator is easily updated should the value to any equations change.
