Google’s AlphaGo Zero Is The Master Of Chess

Just within hours of self-teaching chess from the scratch, AlphaGo Zero has won against world-leading specialist software in the game.

Apparently, this AlphaGo Zero has played 100 games against Stockfish 8 and either won or drew all of them.

Though the research by the peer has yet to be done.

It’s needless to say that the achievement will strengthen the firm’s position in a competitive sector, suggested by the experts.

Prof Michael Wooldridge from the University of Oxford said, “From a scientific point of view, it’s the latest in a series of dazzling results that DeepMind has produced.

The general trajectory in DeepMind seems to be to solve a problem and then demonstrate it can really ramp up performance, and that’s very impressive.”

If anyone wants to dig up the history then he’ll find that in the Chinese board game Go world’s top human players were defeated by DeepMind. It also taught itself how to play video games including Pong and Space Invaders.

The London based team is trying to build a game which is more complex. This game has been developed to beat humans at the space strategy game Starcraft.

It’s evident that Google is not going to comment anything regarding the research until it is published in a journal.

Nonetheless, details published on Cornell University’s Arxiv site state that an algorithm dubbed AlphaZero was able to outperform Stockfish just four hours after being given the rules of chess and being told to learn by playing simulations against itself.

A minute was given to think on per move for that 100 games.

By playing white pieces AlphaZero won 25 games and further three were played with black ones.

The two programs drew the remaining 72 games.

On 2016, Stockfish 8 had won Top Chess Engine Championship, stated by Google. The software was first released in 2008 and has been built on by volunteers in the years since.

Peter Heine Nielsen told the BBC, “I always wondered how it would be if a superior species landed on earth and showed us how they played chess. Now I know.”
