AlphaZero's Anti-Nimzo

The eye-catching victory of AlphaZero, the artificial-intelligence program that taught itself to play chess, over the No 1 computer chess engine Stockfish, has evoked comparisons with human legends.

02.02.2019 18:01 Magnus Carlsen On The Ancient Appeal Of Chess And The Opportunities Of A More Modern Game
On November 28, I won my fourth straight World Chess Championship, a hard-fought victory to defend my position as the leading chess player in the world. At the top level, chess is both rewarding and quite demanding. Always having a chess position running in the back of my mind is the only way I know how to continue to learn and improve. Still, even that is not enough. In competitions, you have to find the right balance between analytical thought and inspired creativity to perform at your best. When it works, it feels natural, and I can’t even imagine losing. Over the last few years, I’ve continued to learn more chess, but the struggle to perform to the standards of the world's increased chess understanding can be quite frustrating. Too often I’ve had the painful experience of making a move after several minutes of deliberation only to discover ...
