Computer Go Programs
Name Country Introduction
Zen Japan
  • Developers: Yoji Ojima (independent programmer) and Hideki Kato (AI researcher).
  • Algorithmic Principles: MCTS with hash-coded large-patterns of expert knowledge of the game of Go and very smart, sequence-like simulations. Dynamic-komi and network parallelism are also used.
  • Features: A carefully tuned combination of significantly improved sequence-like simulations and the large-patterns of Go knowledge. The network parallel algorithm is also our original
CGI Go Intelligence (CGI) Taiwan
  • Developers: Ti-Rong Wu, Ting-Fi Liao, Guan-Wen Chen, Chung-Chin Shih, Li-Cheng Lan, Ting-Chu Ho, and I-Chen Wu.
  • Algorithmic Principles: Monte-Carlo Tree Search with RAVE, large-pattern by machine learning, and dynamic komi.
  • Features: CGI uses the framework of Amigo, mainly including parallel processing. Amigo designed by Liao (as his thesis) has a general MCTS framework for all games.
JIMMY Taiwan
  • Developers: Shi-Jim Yen.
  • Algorithmic Principles: Monte-Carlo Tree Search with RAVE, Multi-thread mode on SMP, pattern ranking by Minorization-Maximization algorithm, Dynamic komi, and pondering..
  • Features: Negative list for tree policy, MoGo style (Fix order) playout policy, machine learning in previous playout statistic.
