Global. Some told me that there will be no value in
developing strong programs, in academic sense. Maybe
others have other reasons. The only exception I know is
Prof. Wu's lab (CGI) in Taiwan.
Some have shifted to generating natural language-like
explanations for AI's moves, developing entertainment
versions which intentionally play close games, etc. and some
have shifted to other games including strategic ones and
imperfect info ones.
