Deus X

Fascinated by the development initiated by DeepMind with AlphaGo and AlphaZero, and the AlphaZero inspired open source community project Leela Chess Zero, combining Deep learning techniques with Monte-Carlo Tree Search, Albert Silver made his own experiments to train the network, relaxing the "Zero" paradigm of pure reinforcement learning from ground up, but supervised learning, feeding in high quality games played by other strong chess playing entities. His Lc0 derivative dubbed Deus X [8] won the PT 54 and apparently became the driving force of the commercial ChessBase cloud project Fat Fritz [9].
