Another Game Won by Alpha
[b][i]Alphazero[i][/b] ran on 1st generation [b][i]TPU[i][/b]s (Google's Tensor Progamming Unit -- a simple fast integrated circuit, designed specifically for [b][i]neural-netwoks[/i][/b]). The program was given just the basic rules of the game ([b][i]Shogi, Go, and Chess ...
