  1. it would be interesting to see a “man vs machine” fight.though artifcial intelligence scientists have been successful a few times to show that a machine is more efficient than man ,we should not forget that once a superfast computer was defeated by a human in solving a mathematical problem.(shakuntala devi was the human being wo did that.)
