Analysis of Hyper-Parameters for Small Games: Iterations or Epochs in Self-Play?
The landmark achievements of AlphaGo Zero have created great researchinterest into self-play in reinforcement learning. In self-play, Monte CarloTree Search is used to train a deep neural network, that is then used in treesearches. Training itself is governed by many hyperparameters.There has bee…
Exploring an Alternative to Jupyter Notebooks for Python Development
