In de week van Sinterklaas kwam het nieuws naar buiten dat Google DeepMind met het programma AlfaoGo Zero een versie van Stockfish heeft verslagen met 64-36 (over 100 partijen). Het bijzondere aan dit verhaal is dat het programma slechts de schaakregels was verteld en zich daarna door middel van partijen tegen zichzelf schaken heeft aangeleerd.

Meer hierover in de volgende Computerschaak.

Round 9 has started:

  • The King - Arminius 1/2
  • Gadget - Embla 0-1
  • Spartacus - Nemeton 0-1
