It sounds like a useful technique, but I'm saying that what you're claiming is a far cry from what the paper claims. They're describing a fruitful research direction and outlining how you might get around certain problems (evaluating models is slow, retraining on inserts, etc.)

Also, predicting power usage is a different problem than scheduling. It's not "managing Borg" by any stretch of the imagination. I'm not saying that's impossible, but it's not what was claimed.

Also, what did Deep Blue lead to? I'm not saying it wasn't impressive, but it didn't generalize AFAIK. You are making a huge leap and claiming that a technique that isn't even deployed generalizes.

What did Watson lead to?
