Machine learning research is an expensive and energy-hungry business. Training a machine learning model can generate carbon emissions equivalent to building and driving five cars over their lifetimes. But why? Artificial neural networks learn by adjusting weights of parameters and connections until an output matches an answer; for example, an algorithm can play a game […]

In “a significant step forward in the pursuit of general-purpose algorithms” that “are able to deal with the messiness and complexity of the real world”, Google DeepMind‘s new reinforcement learning algorithm, MuZero, which like its predecessor AlphaGo uses lookahead search, can achieve superhuman levels of prowess at Go, chess and video games without any prior […]
