The new episode of "The Brain" season 4 is available, featuring Alisa Kellner and Johannes Zhou: [video removed by uploader] Alisa's opponent was Bao Yun, an amateur Go player. Their challenge was to identify three origami products out of 100 possible by seeing the design paper. Johannes Zhou competed against Liu Jian (GMM). Their challenge (starting from 58:00) was to memorize 88 Chinese herb compounds, each composed of 7-15 herbs with weights specified, as well as the locations of 182 herbs. Then given a compound, they reported the constituent herbs' locations and weights. Another challenge (Huang Zheng vs Sylvain Arnoux) in this episode was to find the difference between two juxtaposed images using stereoscopic vision. [post]
