AlphaZero vs. Stockfish

Google-funded DeepMind has now shown that their AlphaZero algorithm can't just be used to beat Go but can outplay the best existing chess engines at chess and shogi. Their algorithm took a mere 4 hours of playing games against itself to teach itself to play chess at a level superior to Stockfish 8! In 100 games AlphaZero scored 25 wins and 25 draws with White, while with Black it scored 3 wins and 47 draws. It didn't lose a game, with the final score 64:36. Here you can replay 10 example games by our new computer overlord. Read the DeepMind paper (pdf): arxiv.org/pdf/1712.01815.pdf
