Prof. Marc Oliver Rieger from Trier University (Germany)
is a participant in the Japanese Go Congress (July 15-18, 2016)
in Takarazuka. In Germany's computer Go forum he gave some
first impressions from the talk given by a Google developer of
AlphaGo (including the question & answer session):
* Alpha go is still under Active development
* How many developers still work on that?
Not as many as before
* Current version stronger than Lee Sedol version but definitely not four stones!
* Don't believe internet rumors! (he also mentioned the stupid Ko conspiracy story)
* Even without mc pretty strong. We haven't measured exactly
* They also used other data than kgs
-> radically different results regarding style
* What data sets did you use?
You'd be surprised if you'd know what data sets we tried out!
But I can't tell you, sorry.
* Very styles for different versions of alphago
* I review my games with alpha go
* Personally, I would very much like to see alphago being sold commercially
* For me (5d Japanese) it would be strong enough without too much computational power
* Will alpha go play beautiful?
Didn't you think the shoulder hit was beautiful? ;-)
