"The games AlphaZero played show it can calculate some incredibly creative positional bombs, the depth of which are far beyond anything humans or chess computers have come up with". That said, Demis Hassabis, CEO of DeepMind, has clarified that while mastering these games is an achievement, they differ significantly from the sorts of scientific problems they one day hope to use AlphaZero to solve. The Go victory was, so far, considered the bleeding edge of its ability, but DeepMind has kept working on and refining this AI, culminating in a startling success in October: a new, fully autonomous version of the AI, which only learned by playing against itself, never humans, bested all its previous incarnations. In their new paper, the team showcases how the very latest AlphaZero AI takes this self-playing method - called reinforcement learning - and mixes it with a much more generally-applicable frame of thought. The AI system, after managing to master Go in just eight hours, unbelievably accomplished the same for chess with just four hours of practice.

AlphaZero's victory over Stockfish 8 has rocked chess experts, who are now wondering if traditional "minimax" chess engines, such as Stockfish 8 and Elmo (another chess engine that got trounced by AlphaZero), are now obsolete. It is a formidable opponent by any standards, except when going up against AlphaZero. Indeed, expert chess bots have been defeating the best human players ever since IBM's Deep Blue supercomputer defeated Garry Kasparov in 1997.
Chess has always been used to test the ability of artificial intelligence because the game's rigid structure is ideal for programming a computer with rules, and then letting it run its own tests against those rules.
