UCI AI Solves Rubik's Cube (IMAGE) University of California - Irvine Caption The fastest people need about 50 moves to solve a Rubik's Cube. "Our AI takes about 20 moves, most of the time solving it in the minimum number of steps," says the study's senior author, Pierre Baldi, UCI Distinguished Professor of computer science. "Right there, you can see the strategy is different, so my best guess is that the AI's form of reasoning is completely different from a human's."
