Schizophreny --- having ones mind divided into several independent persons.
Well, the name is not entirely well chosen. The basic idea of Schizo was, that when you take bunch of a few (imperfect) strategies watch their behaviour and learn which ones to trust and let them vote for next turn, one must achieve an improvement. But this is only an heuristic idea. There is no proof or what that such a kind of adaption idea might work: A poor adaption might select the poorest of all bids at every turn and therefore be worse than any of the single strategies.
Schizo is an implementation of that idea. And it looks like the choosen selection scheme works reasonable. For simplicity Schizo uses instances of the other strategies as plug ins. Therefore it needs more memory and time than any of its partial strategies.
Schizo comes with a bunch of close Relatives:
I lend it to you to make any conclusions from the above. I have to say I didn't expect what eventually happened... It seems like different strategies gain differently from the adaption.
