There was a 1983 "choose your own adventure" book called Starship Traveller
Players were frustrated because they could not figure out how to win.
Below is a chart showing a walk-through with page numbers. Can you see the problem?
The entire book is a run-around, except for the one node at lower center. It is the only node that leads to all the winning game endings (column of blue circles at left edge).
So the players get real tired running around in circles.

New machine learning system from #Nvidia automatically remove backgrounds from images and with surprisingly good results too. Impressive. Uses a technique known as deep image matting. See this paper for details: https://arxiv.org/pdf/1703.03872.pdf and below for the article.
+NVIDIA Please release a TensorFlow version on GitHub ;-)
