Michele Godena, Bruno Codenotti - L'eterna sfida
Italiano | 2021 | 288 pages | ISBN: 8820399784 | EPUB | 100 MB

Un viaggio dietro le quinte di una partita a scacchi con un umanoide, prova di quanto la tecnologia informatica e l'intelligenza artificiale siano penetrate profondamente anche nel mondo degli scacchi. Il libro di Codenotti e Gomena spiega i meccanismi che generano le scelte compiute dal giocatore artificiale, alternando la narrazione di avvenimenti significativi, basata anche su testimonianze dirette, con la presentazione di approfondimenti tecnici. Si parte da grandi personaggi (come Turing e Shannon) che negli anni '40 hanno posto le basi della rivoluzione digitale e che nel contempo hanno formulato le prime idee sull'automatizzazione del pensiero degli scacchisti (da Fischer a Kasparov), mostrando come la storia della programmazione scacchistica sia da sempre andata a braccetto con la storia dell'informatica. Fino a presentare AlphaZero, un giocatore artificiale sviluppato utilizzando gli ultimi ritrovati dell'apprendimento automatico.
