IBM Watson would wipe the floor with them.


And AlphaZero would eat IBM Watson alive.

Here's the story on this AI - the focus of which was on creating an improved learning algorithm. 

After being given the rules of chess it taught itself to be good enough to be better than the currently world champion computer program in *4 hours*:

https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/dec/07/alphazero-google-deepmind-ai-beats-champion-program-teaching-itself-to-play-four-hours

Later on it had a more thorough match against Stockfish beating it in a 1000 game match. 

155 victories for Alphazero, 6 for Stockfish.

 

 

Have you seen the alphago documentary? Used to be on Netflix. Awesome

now if we could only use it to help run the government or make bureaucracy more efficient.

but if we allowed it free reign, it would probably become a swearing, far right, porn addict that would eventually join the og.

I have indeed. Brilliant documentary and an interesting turn of events in the world of AI.

It's easy to overstate what this means with respect to *general* AI (where a machine has something that could be called a consciousness or a will of its own) - it's applications are still incredibly narrow.

BUT it definitely is a major advance for those applications, and to be able to tackle incredibly difficult and complex problems it's amazing. 

A lot of people don't realize that Go was out of reach for programmers for so long because it's orders of magnitude more complex than chess (so intuition and fuzzier general long term strategies played a bigger role than brute force calculation, which was able to eventually chip away at the world's strongest players). 

For the longest time the best they could muster was a program that would play at average club level.

With Alpha Go (and the even stronger Alpha Zero) the program absolutely crushed all human competition. 

So amazing.

I grew up playing competitively at a magnet school in the 80s, our team would regularly take first at nationals. We were coached by Sunil, Nakamura’s adoptive father and coach. Sunil is a wonderful and warm man who every single kid enjoyed being around.

Nakamura was on fire today. He is the first to advance to the semifinals.

He’s fun to watch. I wish I could see a map of inside his head when he’s calculating his next move

Naka has grown.

He was a little petulant bratty kid in his early career. He's matured nowadays and gives great commentary.

I like how he plays. No nonsense aggressive chess.

He's the second best rapid player of all-time. Unfortunately for him, Carlsen is first. Carlsen also owns Naka in every time control.
