Although the research for computer-based Go AI engines started at about 1980's, Go is currently considered as the last board game which need to be implemented using computer systems. Most current Go implementations are using tree-search technique to find the best moves, however it is nearly impossible to review all possible candidate moves in Go games. In this paper, we propose a totally different approach: a data-driven Go engine. Hugh amount of game log database is stored in Hadoop servers… CONTINUE READING
