AlphaZero’s future chess rival | Leela Chess Zero ID 82 (LCZero)

Remember Google’s self-learning AI AlphaZero? You know, the machine learning chess beast that made use of its deep neural networks to go on to smash the top chess engine Stockfish 8 in a 100-game match. Well AlphaZero now has a future rival in Leela Chess Zero! Part of what makes Leela Chess Zero very interesting is that you can view the games she has played, contribute to helping her grow stronger, and even play against her at any level up to her strongest level. At the time of this video upload, Leela Chess Zero’s approximate chess playing strength is around 2000 (Expert level), and it was obtained after “just” 1.6 million self-play games. What strength might she reach after, let’s say, 100 million self-play games? And what can we, in turn, learn from her? The sky may very well be the limit for Leela Chess Zero (LCZero).
