Topic: AlphaZero and its Impact on Chess
The world was appalled when AlphaGo first played Lee Sedol in Go, winning 4 matches to 1. DeepMind subsequently released AlphaGo Zero, an iteration on AlphaGo that beat it 100-1. Going even further, they released AlphaZero, which learned how to play games such as Shogi and Chess. Kevin, an avid chess enthusiast, wanted to discuss what this meant for the Chess world.
