This week we chat with Julian Schrittwieser, a staff software engineer at DeepMind, the AI lab acquired by Google in 2014. He is one of the authors of a recent paper on MuZero, an AI program that mastered “Go, chess, shogi and Atari without needing to be told the rules, thanks to its ability to plan winning strategies in unknown environments.”

You can find  the paper on MuZero here.

He blogs at Furidamu and can be found on Twitter here.

The story on drug discovery powered by AI can be found here.
