Those who saw Demis Hassabis speak at CSAR or watched the video of that event may be interested to read about the latest developments at Google DeepMind. The BBC reports that "AlphaGo Zero began with a blank Go board and no data apart from the rules, and then played itself. Within 72 hours it was good enough to beat the original program by 100 games to zero."
