Tests of pseudo-random number generator (PRNG) performance use deterministic analysis to expose weaknesses, which new PRNGs are designed to satisfy. Modern supervised learning algorithms offer an improved method to test PRNG performance. Richard Freytag offers a short, concrete, and intuitive exploration of how to apply machine learning as a black box in pseudo-random number generators.
