背景:Google的人工智能程序AlphaGo曾经战胜了世界顶尖的几位人类围棋手,引起全世界热议。前不久,Google推出了AlphaGo的加强版AlphaGo Zero。只需对该程序输入下棋的基本规则,而不需要大量棋谱作为训练样本,AlphaGo Zero就能通过自我对弈提升下棋的能力。之前,AlphaGo Zero在训练了三个月后在围棋领域水平已经达到顶尖;近日,谷歌宣布,AlphaGo Zero仅仅训练了几个小时,就在国际象棋领域如鱼得水了。

Google says its AlphaGo Zero artificial intelligence program has triumphed at chess against world-leading specialist software within hours of teaching itself the game from scratch.

The firm's DeepMind division says that it played 100 games against Stockfish 8, and won or drew all of them.

The research has yet to be peer reviewed.

But experts already suggest the achievement will strengthen the firm's position in a competitive sector.
