Questions tagged [alphago-zero]

For questions related to AlphaGo Zero, which is a version of DeepMind's Go software, AlphaGo, that does not use data from human games and it is stronger than AlphaGo. There is a generalized version of AlphaGo Zero called AlphaZero, which beat the 3-day version of AlphaGo Zero by winning 60 games to 40. AlphaGo Zero was introduced in the paper "Mastering the game of Go without human knowledge" (2017) by David Silver et al.
