tiny example of what is to come. Hidebound disciplines like
education and medicine will also be shaken. -- Garry Kasparov
BBC Focus magazine, January 2019, carries an excerpt from new book Game Changer. Its an excerpt from the Introduction by Demis Hassabis, founder of artificial intelligence company DeepMind, the devlopers of AlphaZero - the technology which is the subject of Game Changer. The article points out why this technology is important in a much wider arena than the world of chess!
Most unnerving was that AlphaZero seemed to express insight. It played like no computer ever has, intuitively and beautifully, with a romantic, attacking style. -- Steven Strogatz, professor of mathematics at Cornell, New York Times
Quite inspirational. I was thinking at several points during the game [in Round 11 of the 2019 Tata Steel Chess Tournament]: how would AlphaZero have approached this? World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen
I love Game Changer. This is a phenomenal book. -- International Master John Bartholomew, on his YouTube Channel
One of the most important chess books ever written. -- Grandmaster Raymond Keene, The Spectator
I absolutely love it. A fascinating read: provocative, inspiring, instructive and joyful. AlphaZeros style is great fun, some of the things it is doing are incredible. This is just a great book. Grandmaster Daniel King, on his YouTube channel
