AlphaZero’s attacking game in chess

leave a comment »

This is quite an interesting game because of the way AlphaZero evaluates the worth of pieces: very positional weighting, apparently. AlphaZero is self-taught so far as play is concerned: the program was fed only the rules, with no guidance regarding values of pieces, game strategy, game tactics, or the scores of any human games. AlphaZero then played millions of games against itself and learned from that experience. In this video AlphaGo is playing the strongest chess engine to date, Stockfish. I found it quite interesting. Anna Rudolph provides a very helpful commentary, so sound on for this one.

Dapper Doc’s Lilac & Fig

with 4 comments

Dapper Doc’s Lilac & Fig shaving soap is another Ck-6 soap, and I very much enjoyed it this morning, using the RazoRock Keyhole synthetic brush—a brush I like a lot and made me think I should do a post of the synthetic brushes I enjoy.

Three passes with the Charcoal razor left my face perfectly smooth, and a splash of Lilac & Fig aftershave finished the job.
