The name of JellyFish:
When I gave it this name I considered the following:
- compared to a biological neural net it has a very low number
of 'brain cells', and not being a biologist, I figured it might
be comparable to the jellyfish.
- Though primitive, the jellyfish is a very successful creature,
or so I believe. It's a survivor.
- I thought there were all to many not-so-strong programs with
names that promised too much, like 'super-champion-pro-backgammon',
and thought it would be fun to see them all eaten by a lower life form.
- I liked the sound of the word.
