[Computer-go] AlphaGo Zero

This paper is required reading. When I read this team’s papers, I think to myself “Wow, this is brilliant! And I think I see the next step.” When I read their next paper, they show me the next *three* steps. I can’t say enough good things about the quality of the work.

 

A stunning result. The NN uses a standard vision architecture (no Go adaptation beyond what is necessary to represent the game state). The MCTS is the simplest imaginable search: it has no playout policy!

 

I can’t wait to see what the team does next.

Wow! That's very exciting. I'm glad they didn't completely shelve the project as they implied they might do after the match with Lee Sedol.

I'm looking forward to seeing some games and "... plays unknown to humans", as Hassabis states.

Also, I love this comment from Silver, something I have always promoted: The implication is that “algorithms matter much more than either computing or data available”.
