Code your own Alphago player!
Course content will start with machine learning techniques based on statistics, and will progressively move towards abstract representations and reasoning about the world, and finally the formalisms that combine elements of both. Practical sessions will allow participants to entirely code their own self learning Go player, and to prepare for a competition at the end of the week.
These coding sessions will be held in small groups, and will concentrate on explaining the mechanisms of the Alphago player. Participants will thus discover the power of machine learning and symbolic artificial intelligence when combined.
