Each evaluated move is coloured by 2 rings, the thick inner ring is win% and the thin outer (harmonic) ring is delta(win%) which is the difference between black's win% for that move compared to black's win% just before white played her last move. The bulls-eye of the move is the colour of the player on move, in this case, black. i have also elided Sabaki's 'last move' mark, as (a) in Go, which move was last is only of historical interest (historians can easily find out by strolling back and forth, or by looking in the the game tree subwindow), and (b) its strong colour conflicts with bullseye colour.

Here, all Laizy's top moves increase black's win%, which remains within the olive zone.P7's delta ring is a tiny bit lighter than all the others, which are all less than 1% higher than P7's (i forget the exact numbers).------------------------Opinions expressed in this article are not necessarily endorsed by its publisher.

The reverse as what we advised yesterday.Some stronger players did already advise me on this in my teachings...

Aye, there's the rub, for She doesn't say a damn thing, she only does (mares eat does and does eat does, but little lambs eat Ivy - poor old Ivy, doomed for all eternity to perpetually climb like Sisyphus up the wall of thickness with nowhere to Go!)Sure, anyone can drive themself into a 3-3 corner without thinking about it, and anyone can do a double jump along the 4th line because that's what Laizy's grandmother liked to do; but surely we can learn more from Her than that??!

For instance, one medical expert system gave better initial diagnoses (that is, before tests were performed) than general practitioners. Also in the medical field, MDs were able to learn from an expert system and do better by themselves than either they or the system alone had done before. It is going to take some time, but I think that the AI era will fairly quickly see humans playing much better. Even if they can't say why.

Some are more intuitive; some more analytical.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4519675/It's probably the case that the best Go players are more analytical than intuitive, as reading isn't something you can afford to not do.But what to read??i only ever speak for myself, and everything i say is only my opinion, and in this case my opinion is that i would like some help in figuring out what to read...Perhaps you could try reviewing a long game backwards after reviewing it forwards. It will likely take quite a while, but the fewer options towards the end of the game should make it easier to be thorough at the start.It might also show the moves you intuitively select as candidate moves without being influenced by previous moves (neural nets essentially read the same way as humans).jaca wrote:Aidoneus wrote:All About Thickness by Ishida YoshioKiseido sell an e-book download of All About Thickness http://www.kiseidodigital.com/kdb1-toc.htmlIshida was called "the computer" by his peers, so who better to guide us to a better understanding of influence!...1974 #1— the Computer2017 #1— the Computer

Quote:For example what would an influence map say is going on in these corners?I thought it might be fun to show the maps for my influence function. I dipped my toe into influence functions in the early 2000s. I found a function that produces correct territory estimates in certain well defined situations. To my surprise, when applied to the whole board, it produced a komi estimate of around 8. Surprisingly close. So I thought it might make a reasonable first approximation, despite its oversimplification and other flaws.. . .Did you test it on 9x9? It would be interesting to see the results .

 Author: Vio [ Fri Feb 01, 2019 10:04 pm ] Post subject: Re: influence concensus map A wall has different value of influence according to his own life status. A wall with eyes, or an extension or a ponnuki to take some examples are much more influent as a simple line of stones.That's so fundamental that I don't see how to modulate a punctual influence value without implying much more concepts like life and death...

I don't mean Michael, who is a shining star that even Neil could see and an example to us all - how he manages to keep a straight face with the antics of that middle-aged actress pretending to be a 13 year-old schoolgirl cavorting around and grinning like a Cheshire Cat at the camera i will never know! Ishida set what many believe to be an impossibly difficult challenge for Go programmers, because people don't think like computers like himbut have no fear, Ishida+Redmond - inspired https://github.com/gogre/irgobot is here to save the day and tell you the plain facts of life, death and influence:the next episode will compare Michael Redmond's analysis of a position in game 9 of Zero vs Master with what irgobot makes of it, focussing on estimating territory in the early part of the midgame.Attachment: irgobotgit.png [ 455.73 KiB | Viewed 725 times ]
