  • Game Changer by Matthew Sadler
    Game Changer (English, Paperback) Matthew Sadler, Natasha Regan

    AlphaZero, the self-learning artificial intelligence system created by DeepMind, had been fed nothing but the rules of the Royal Game when it beat the world's strongest chess engine. The games that were published created a sensation: how was it possible to play in such a brilliant and risky style and not lose a single game against an opponent of superhuman strength? Matthew Sadler and Natasha Regan investigated more than two thousand previously unpublished games by AlphaZero. They also had unparalleled access to its developers and were offered a unique look ?under the bonnet'. Sadler and Regan reveal AlphaZero's thinking process and tell the story of its creation. Game Changer also presents a collection of lucidly explained chess games of astonishing quality. Both professionals and club players will improve their game by studying AlphaZero's stunning discoveries in every field that matters: opening preparation, piece mobility, initiative, attacking techniques, long-term sacrifices and much more. Game Changer offers intriguing insights into the opportunities and horizons of Artificial Intelligence. With a foreword by former World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov and an introduction by DeepMind CEO Demis Hassabis.
