Congratulations to Zen!

Congratulations to Zen19X, undefeated winner of last Sunday's KGS bot tournament!

My report is at http://www.weddslist.com/kgs/past/124/index.html. It is late because I have been on holiday with only a laptop for the last week.  I hope you will all tell me of any comments or corrections.

I apologise for my error in setting up the Open division with 9x9 boards, which meant that no games could be played in that division. 

Nick

Japanese Go Congress: Talk on AlphaGo

Hi,

Prof. Marc Oliver Rieger from Trier University (Germany)
is a participant in the Japanese Go Congress (July 15-18, 2016)
in Takarazuka. In Germany's computer Go forum he gave some
first impressions from the talk given by a Google developer of
AlphaGo (including the question & answer session):

* Alpha go is still under Active development

* How many developers still work on that? 
Not as many as before

* Current version stronger than Lee Sedol version but definitely not four stones!

* Don't believe internet rumors! (he also mentioned the stupid Ko conspiracy story)

* Even without mc pretty strong. We haven't measured exactly

* They also used other data than kgs 
-> radically different results regarding style

* What data sets did you use?
You'd be surprised if you'd know what data sets we tried out! 
But I can't tell you, sorry.

* Very styles for different versions of alphago

* I review my games with alpha go 

* Personally, I would very much like to see alphago being sold commercially

* For me (5d Japanese) it would be strong enough without too much computational power

* Will alpha go play beautiful?
Didn't you think the shoulder hit was beautiful?   ;-)

The link to Marc's posting is here:

An announcement of the congress, from June 26, is here:

Re: Aja presentation

Hi,

the organizers taped it on video. I will let you know as soon
as I learn where it is put online.

The event was:
10 minutes honorings
35 minutes presentation by Aja
20 minutes questions and answers

The japanese "Computer Go Forum", presented by Hideki Kato, 
awarded the Alpha Go team an honorary diploma. And for each of
Aja Huang, David Silver, and Demis Hassabis they gave a decorative fan.
See here for a photo:

The slide with comments on problems in game 4 is this one:

cgos <--> kgs rating


Hay,

I wonder if somebody has the same program (with the same settings)
rated on cgos 19x19 and kgs?

I am still fighting with resigning in the case of value-network and
playouts disagree, so I can not run oakfoam on kgs, but would like to
have a strength hint :)

Thanks Detlef
