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/
Find state names that end with the letter A
Make one big string out of two smaller strings
Construct an index vector from two input vectors in vectorized fashion
Replicate elements in vectors
Sum the numbers on the main diagonal
