BERLIN: Computers may have us beat at chess and checkers, but new research suggests our brains still have an edge when it comes to solving certain tricky problems thanks to a very human trait: intuition.Frank Wilhelm-Mauch, a professor of theoretical physics at the University of Saarbruecken who wasn't involved in the study, said the Danish scientists had found a way to exploit the way humans intuitively find solutions to fairly complex problems by simplifying them, thereby achieving a solution that might not be as mathematically perfect as that produced by a computer but definitely more practical.The effort might also be seen as a response to the setbacks human players have suffered against computers in more traditional games recently.
