These guys DID watch Terminator, right?
Thursday, December 07, 2017


It seems an artificial intelligence system "AlphaZero" tought itself how to play chess, taking only 4 hours of practice before it could beat the reigning chess program in the world, winning 28 out of 100 games, and drawing the rest. All that, after being told only the basic move rules to the game, and learning the rest - strategies, plans, traps, and the rest - by playing itself, learning by trying things out.


OK... it learned how to play chess. Not earth-shattering in the big scheme of things... but what if they ask it to learn, say, "Global Thermo-nuclear War," or some other similar game? If this thing can master chess, go, and shogi in less than a day, imagine what ELSE it could learn. This has "Terminator" written all over it!
