I personally agree that the issue is not randomness but perceived randomness. I think of it as the "playlist shuffle" problem. Many music apps shuffle a playlist by just choosing a random song in the playlist. But that means it's a near-certainty that many songs will be played multiple times, before all the songs in the playlist are played at least once.
What most people expect is "shuffling" like a deck of cards - they don't want the songs to be randomized, they want the song order to be randomized. If they hear the same song twice, they think the shuffle "isn't working."
Right.... Only in our case it turned out that the algorithm designed to solve "imaginary repetitions "generates "real repetitions".
I would like the developers to pay attention to this.
And what algorithm they will eventually choose-we should not care. And what algorithm they will eventually choose-we should not care.
