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.
