How Long Does It Take For Monkeys To Reproduce Shakespeare's Works?
A programmers tests out the Infinite Monkey Theorem to see if virtual monkeys can reproduce The Bard's complete works.
Jesse Anderson, an American programmer, has put the Infinite Monkey Theorem to test by using ‘virtual monkeys.' In just a little over a month, the virtual monkeys have typed the whole Lover's Complaint poem and are 99.99 percent through completing Shakespeare's complete works.
The Infinite Monkey Theorem is a mathematical metaphor stating that if an infinite number of monkeys are randomly typing on a typewriter for an infinite number of time, it will almost surely type enough random phrases to produce the complete works of William Shakespeare.
