The Colley Matrix, to be more accurate, which is one of the programs used in establishing the BCS rankings in college football. Though Alabama (which had lost a game earlier in the year) finished #1 after defeating Notre Dame (which had been undefeated and #1 going into the game), the magnificently written Colley Matrix still ranked the University of Notre Dame #1 afterward, with Alabama just a touch behind at #2. Some may find this a reductio ad absurdum against computer rankings, but maybe it shows just how far computer programming has come and how beautifully it can simulate intelligence!
