Linux founding message. Bitcoin founding paper. The future is here – AlphaZero learns chess | ChessBase. About three years ago, DeepMind, a company owned by Google that specializes in AI development, turned its attention to the ancient game of Go. Go had been the one game that had eluded all computer efforts to become world class, and even up until the announcement was deemed a goal that would not be attained for another decade! This was how large the difference was. When a public challenge and match was organized against the legendary player Lee Sedol, a South Korean whose track record had him in the ranks of the greatest ever, everyone thought it would be an interesting spectacle, but a certain win by the human. The question wasn’t even whether the program AlphaGo would win or lose, but how much closer it was to the Holy Grail goal. The saga did not end there. Many chess players and pundits had wondered how it would do in the noble game of chess. However, there were some very startling results in the last few months that need to be understood.

A new AI was created called AlphaZero. Apple iphone presentation. Wikipedia by Wikipedia. For Wikipedia's non-encyclopedic visitor introduction, see Wikipedia:About. Wikipedia ( i/ˌwɪkɨˈpiːdiə/ or i/ˌwɪkiˈpiːdiə/ WIK-i-PEE-dee-ə) is a free-access, free content Internet encyclopedia, supported and hosted by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation.

Développement[modifier | modifier le code] Ce navigateur a été publié en 1993[2] alors que le World Wide Web développé par le CERN ne comptait que 200 sites, 3 ans après son lancement. Le projet Mosaic est alors dirigé par Joseph Hardin, les principaux développeurs étant Eric J. Bina (programmation) et Marc Andreessen (programmation et support). Le développement de Mosaic est arrêté depuis 1997 tandis que les autres navigateurs continuaient d'évoluer, si bien que son nombre d'utilisateurs est pratiquement tombé à zéro dès 1998.

Netscape[modifier | modifier le code] L'essentiel de l'équipe à l'origine de Mosaic a quitté le NCSA dès 1994 pour rejoindre Netscape Communications Corporation et développer Netscape Navigator.
