Is bridge the next challenge for Artificial Intelligence ?
For those who could not follow the webinar:
For Those Interested in AI and Bridge
Just mentioning this event I announced in a separate thread: What if bridge was the next milestone of AI ? Dr Ventos, a senior AI researcher and a strong French player has been struggling for two years to convince her fellow scientists that bridge was much more ...
What hasn't been said yet
We played 230 boards in Wroclaw, perhaps most of which against Polish pairs. Very few of them had no Convention card and all of them were eager to explain their bidding, carding, etc in detail. What's more, Polish Club is basically natural and very easy to understand. Finally, I ...

Jean-Baptiste Fantun's lead problem: QT5 J8764 5 Q983
