DeepMind’s artificial intelligence programme AlphaZero is now showing signs of human-like intuition and creativity, in what developers have hailed as ‘turning point’ in history.

The computer system amazed the world last year when it mastered the game of chess from scratch within just four hours, despite not being programmed how to win.

But now, after a year of testing and analysis by chess grandmasters, the machine has developed a new style of play unlike anything ever seen before, suggesting the programme is now improvising like a human.

Unlike the world’s best chess machine – Stockfish – which calculates millions of possible outcomes as it plays, AlphaZero learns from its past successes and failures, making its moves based on, a ‘nebulous sense that it is all going to work out in the long run,’ according to experts at DeepMind.

When AlphaZero was pitted against Stockfish in 1,000 games, it lost just six, winning convincingly 155 times, and drawing the remaining bouts.

the article says, “AlphaZero readily sacrificed its soldiers for a better position in the skirmish. … placing far less value on individual pieces.”
this can be a really really bad thing. when AI is used to solve human problems, e.g. devise a winning war strategy, it would readily sacrifice human soldiers because it places far less value to human lives. that’s a difference between human and machine. all machine cares about is a win at any cost.
