AlphaZero's groundbreaking strategies and the promises of AI

AlphaZero only needed a few hours of self-learning to become the chess player that shook the world. The artificial intelligence system was fed nothing other than the rules of the Royal Game before it defeated the world's best chess program in a long match. The selection of ten games published in December 2017 caused a worldwide sensation: How was it possible to play so brilliantly and riskily against an opponent of superhuman strength without losing a single game?

For A turning point in chess Matthew Sadler and Natasha Regan examined more than two thousand previously unpublished AlphaZero games. They also had exclusive access to the DeepMind research team and were able to take a unique look “under the hood” to gauge the depth and breadth of AlphaZero’s search functionality.

A turning point in chess also presents a collection of memorably explained chess games of exceptional quality. AlphaZero's amazing discoveries in every relevant area increase the playing strength of both professional and club players: opening preparation, piece mobility, initiative, attack techniques, long-term sacrifices and much more.

This book offers fascinating insights into the perspectives and possibilities of artificial intelligence. The scope is by no means limited to solving games, but also addresses a wide variety of social challenges.

Grandmaster Matthew Sadler is a two-time British Champion and was awarded a gold medal for the best individual result at the 1996 Chess Olympiad. The Englishwoman Natasha Regan , Women's International Master, graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in mathematics.

Former world chess champion Garry Kasparov:
"The game of chess has been shaken to its foundations by AlphaZero."
