Thanks for the reference. I had much fun reading this paper.

SER = 10.7, puzzle in B4B
Conclusion: a little harder than the previous ones, but still light years behind the hardest known ones (SER = 11.9, B7B)
Maybe they don't have Internet on his planet.

On the web page there is a faint 'contact us' button at the top. I suggest that everyone send a comment to the sponsors. They might be quite surprised by the reaction.

As I was looking for information about another interesting puzzle (Futoshiki generators), I found several links to websites (often software companies) where the keyword appeared but not the expected generator. I guess they managed to use this for increasing their google score.

Considering the pseudo-scientific content of this drugs company webpage, it seems that they are doing something similar.

BTW, the webpage suggests a natural name for this forgettable puzzle: AI Zheimer. (Whether the "I" is a lower case L or an upper case i, as in AI Escargot, is left open.) :lol:
