Finally, a problem where random smart guesses leads to a good solution. Trying all possibilities is not feasible, and there are many states that can have the same output.
The Kaggle challenge was to find those previous states with machine learning, but the Conway game of life is not reversible. I recommend playing with it a little https://playgameoflife.com/
