      @gimli Negged as a vacuous, ambiguous comment without any verification….do you mean BF trained the app or BF used the app to train (latter highly unlikely IMO)

      Great documentary.
      Great game too.

    • Shit I just watched this. Was quite exciting and interesting.

      Gonna pick up Go too and try to teach the kids.

      • I learned how to play Go a few years before Alpha GO beat the pros. When I was started there was a chance I could still be better than the best AI. (The AI at the time was not stronger than a solid amateur). No chance of achieving that goal now haha.

        The rules of Go are super simple but learning basic tactics and strategy for to have enjoyable games takes a while. Realistically I'd say 6-12 months of regular playing. There's great resources on youtube about how to play and also interesting theory lectures. I quite enjoyed learning the theory, history and solving go puzzles.

        I took a break from Go and then have not got back to it in the last few years but will one day.

        Personally, the problem with Go is that it is hard to find people to play with in person which I think is important as a kid. There are Go clubs but the one in Sydney I used to attend was small and didn't have many kids.

    Computers don’t play like real people do unfortunately. Beginner cpu makes really weird moves that don’t give you any idea of how people actually play so when you start playing against real people you have to start from the bottom again

    • it works both ways, where you play like a computer to throw off your opponents..

      computer or human..it's just different strategies competing for the better position, strategic advantage , and ultimately the win

    • Agree, you're better off just creating an account on Chess.com or lichess.org and playing against people, plenty of free content on YouTube to teach you the basics and even some intermediate expert stuff.

      • I partly disagree. I use chess.com and outside of tournaments you are limited to playing people at the same level as you rating wise. I think part of the learning happens playing people stronger than you.

        Particularly in the learning stages of chess big part of improving is not making blunders and generally the stronger AI's punish any mistakes which can be good for learning.

          That is the whole point of the rating system, you beat people of your own strength, as you get better you gain rating and start facing stronger opponents as your rating increases. If you are rated say 1000 there is no point trying to play people or bots that are 1500 because the gap is so large that there is a whole lot of stuff that you won't know, whether it's tactics, theory, different openings or strategy etc.

          The main issue with AI is that they generally play moves that a person wouldn't, they make obscure moves that often make no sense because the AI is not just thinking 8-10 moves ahead, but 8-10 obscure moves ahead. Moves that probably wouldn't get played unless you are rated like 2400 and playing classical time controls. They don't hang pieces, they don't respond to your moves or threats the way a normal person would etc. It is just straight up weird, just for the sake of it I just played a game against the 1500 bot on chess.com and the entire game was just full of pawn moves that made no sense. Then it got down to a rook end game and the play with the rook was poor, didn't use the king etc, its just not how people play - honestly seemed weaker than a 1200.

  • Started from the bottom now we here.
