Battleship calculator

C. Liam Brown has built a Battleship probability calculator, which (roughly speaking) works by finding the square which is the most likely to yield a hit given the set of hits and misses so far. You can play against it if you want. A lot of this might be said to be a web-friendly implementation Nick Berry’s analysis of the game, although analysis and implementation are two different beasts. (Funny, that keeps coming up in my day job…)
