    Google's DeepMind AI Becomes a Superhuman Chess Player In a Few Hours

    In a new paper published this week, DeepMind describes how a descendant of the AI program that first conquered the board game Go has taught itself to play a number of other games at a superhuman level. After eight hours of self-play, the program bested the AI that first beat the human world Go champion; and after four hours of training, it beat the current world champion chess-playing program, Stockfish. Then for a victory lap, it trained for just two hours and polished off one of the world's best shogi-playing programs named Elmo (shogi being a Japanese version of chess that's played on a bigger board). One of the key advances here is that the new AI program, named AlphaZero, wasn't specifically designed to play any of these games. In each case, it was given some basic rules (like how knights move in chess, and so on) but was programmed with no other strategies or tactics. It simply got better by playing itself over and over again at an accelerated pace -- a method of training AI known as "reinforcement learning."

    This is also the method of training that @Jontro uses.

    I'd like this computer to solve over-population and automation. See if it becomes self-aware.

    It's a simple solution it's going to kill everyone.

    It seems like that is what unsupervised learning will do.

    That computer doesn’t want it with me. I’ll open its browser and inundate it with tabs full of pop up laced porn sites and pirated streams. Wouldn’t know what hit it.

    Reinforcement learning just sounds kind of ominous, Skynet like.

    If/when artificial general intelligence happens, super intelligence will quickly follow.

    LOL, probably will take a week for it to figure out how to kill all mankind.

    If in the actual LIFE we live. . . . . your opponent is a machine.

    I look at the Robot Apocalypse and wonder . . . . could humanity lose to its creation.
    can you build something smarter than you?
    I think the biggest issue is building something more ruthless than you
    that is where we lose.

    I think that is actually one of the project for the deepmind team, to train the AI to play video games like a human, with mouse and keyboard and using electronic eyes for data gathering on the screen. Most of the human jobs will be replaced in less than 50 years is my guess, maybe less than 20 years.
