AlphaGo Zero: An overview of the algorithm

Jessica YungArtificial Intelligence, Highlights

In this post I go through the algorithms presented in the groundbreaking AlphaGo Zero paper using pseudocode. The objective is to provide a high-level idea of what the model does. Why AlphaGo Zero matters Last week, Google DeepMind published their final iteration of AlphaGo, AlphaGo Zero. To say its performance is remarkable is an understatement. AlphaGo Zero made two breakthroughs: … Read More

Code, Explained: Training a model in TensorFlow

Jessica YungArtificial Intelligence, Self-Driving Car ND

In a previous post, we went through the TensorFlow code for a multilayer perceptron. Now we will discuss how we train the model with TensorFlow, specifically in a TensorFlow Session. We will use Aymeric Damien’s implementation in this post. I recommend you skim through the code first and have the code open in a separate window. I have included the key portions … Read More

Bugger! Detecting Lane Lines
