Author’s Abstract

  1. DeepMind's AlphaGo made waves when it became the first AI to beat a top human Go player in March of 2016. This version of AlphaGo - AlphaGo Lee - used a large set of Go games from the best players in the world during its training process.
  2. A new paper was released a few days ago detailing a new neural net - AlphaGo Zero - that does not need humans to show it how to play Go. Not only does it outperform all previous Go players, human or machine, it does so after only three days of training time.
  3. This article will explain how and why it works.
