Teaching AI to master games without knowing the rules may help to lay the foundation for more general intelligence in real world environments.

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.
