Hello in the round,

I asked a Japanese friend how the DeepMind report
(on Chess and Shogi) was recepted in the Shogi scene.

Here are the central parts of his answer (given on Wednesday):
> Today, I just found a news on Alpha Zero in a Japanese
> common newspaper, Asahi Shinbun, reporting the superiority
> to previous AI playing program, probably through Google.
> ...
> In the paper, “Mastering Chess and Shogi by Self-Play with
> a General Reinforcement Learning Algorith,” by DeepMind,
> it seems there is no example of Shogi play.
> Japan Shogi League seems not yet to respond to recent
> Alpha Zero news.

For the Shogi scene it would definitely be interesting
to get Shogi games of AlphaZero for replay.
