Using the game of Go as a way to teach machine learning is inspired and inspiring. Highly recommended!

Deep Learning and the Game of Go teaches you how to apply the power of deep learning to complex reasoning tasks by building a Go-playing AI. After exposing you to the foundations of machine and deep learning, you'll use Python to build a bot and then teach it the rules of the game.

This book is one of three products included in the Applied Deep Learning bundle. Get the entire bundle for only $59.99.

about the technology

The ancient strategy game of Go is an incredible case study for AI. In 2016, a deep learning–based system shocked the Go world by defeating a world champion. Shortly after that, the upgraded AlphaGo Zero crushed the original bot by using deep reinforcement learning to master the game. Now, you can learn those same deep learning techniques by building your own Go bot!

about the book

Deep Learning and the Game of Go introduces deep learning by teaching you to build a Go-winning bot. As you progress, you’ll apply increasingly complex training techniques and strategies using the Python deep learning library Keras. You’ll enjoy watching your bot master the game of Go, and along the way, you’ll discover how to apply your new deep learning skills to a wide range of other scenarios!
