AlphaZero Bested Humans at Chess and StarCraft, Now it’s Working with Quantum Computers
(NextWeb) A team of researchers from Aarhus University in Denmark let DeepMind‘s AlphaZero algorithm loose on a few quantum computing optimization problems and, much to everyone’s surprise, the AI was able to solve the problems without any outside expert knowledge.
DeepMind and its AI systems. The UK-based Google sister-company is responsible for both AlphaZero and AlphaGo, the systems that beat the world’s most skilled humans at the games of Chess and Go.

When the Aarhus team applied AlphaZero’s optimization abilities to a trio of problems associated with optimizing quantum functions – an open problem for the quantum computing world – they learned that its ability to learn new parameters unsupervised transferred over from games to applications quite well.
