Using Joseki for Tactics Deployment in Computer Go

Abstract

We present a new idea for opening play to improve the playing strength of computer Go programs. It uses a collection of canonical sequences (Joseki) and their deviations with the aim to improve computer Go programs. Instead of trivially matching opening moves played to the collected sequences, we define a notion of similarity to extract the most suitable move from the candidate sequences. The simplicity of our method and its positive outcome make our approach a promising tool to be integrated into a complete computer Go program for a foreseeable improvement.
