    Really fantastic video for someone like me who has very limited formal math knowledge but quite a bit of programming experience - it’s so good because it goes into detail about the concepts and the way the approaches are being constructed with just the right amount of background and context. Really enjoyed it, thanks for posting.

      Hm interesting, my opening has been DARES … surprised CRANE is better, though I still need to watch the video :)

        From 3b1b’s comment regarding CRANE:

        For a human playing Wordle, I’m not sure I’d actually recommend starting with it, since it requires also knowing what it will do for second guesses. For example, here’s the start of the mapping for what it does with that second guess:

        ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ -> sloth

        ⬛⬛🟨⬛⬛ -> toils

        ⬛⬛⬛⬛🟨 -> spilt

        ⬛🟨⬛⬛🟨 -> rosit

        ⬛⬛⬛⬛🟩 -> toils

        ⬛🟨⬛⬛⬛ -> shout

        ⬛🟨🟨⬛⬛ -> party

        ⬛⬛⬛🟩⬛ -> gluts

        ⬛⬛⬛🟨🟨 -> lemon

        ⬛⬛⬛🟨⬛ -> pilot

        🟨⬛⬛⬛⬛ -> kutis

        ⬛🟩⬛⬛⬛ -> pilot

        ⬛🟨🟨⬛🟨 -> patly

        ⬛⬛🟩⬛⬛ -> slipt

        ⬛⬛🟨⬛🟩 -> lambs

        ⬛⬛🟨🟨⬛ -> toils

        ⬛⬛🟨⬛🟨 -> tepal

        ⬛⬛🟩⬛🟩 -> glost

        ⬛🟨⬛⬛🟩 -> south

        This is an effective application of entropy.
