    I found this article very interesting:

    DeepMind’s AlphaZero crushes chess

    "20 years after DeepBlue defeated Garry Kasparov in a match, chess players have awoken to a new revolution. The AlphaZero algorithm developed by Google and DeepMind took just four hours of playing against itself to synthesise the chess knowledge of one and a half millennium and reach a level where it not only surpassed humans but crushed the reigning World Computer Champion Stockfish 28 wins to 0 in a 100-game match. All the brilliant stratagems and refinements that human programmers used to build chess engines have been outdone, and like Go players we can only marvel at a wholly new approach to the game."

    I will never understand these computers, how do they get better than the people who created them?

    At this point, I kind of look at it in the same way the cars we design can move faster than we can.

    Some day, the machines will be sentient, and their intelligence will increase geometrically, and we will have invented god. :bow:

    We should create billions of sentient beings, highly intelligent and whatever. Then when humans die out, they'll live on like in A.I. (the movie)

    ^ We should encase the sentient beings in metal instead of what the creators that created us did, lol. Flesh? That is one of the biggest design flaws in history, lol. :)
