Recently Alphabet's DeepMind released a couple of hundred of chess games played by AlphaZero (their self-taught AI) vs Stockfish (the best 'classic' chess engine out there), where AlphaZero thoroughly thrashed Stockfish. And now I found a new source of entertainment: videos of chess youtubers analyzing the games.
I do know the chess rules but I haven't played more than 10 games in my life. Still, I find the videos fascinating. For one, I do love when someone has obvious passion and deep knowledge, but more importantly, I love watching the experts share the joy and wonder of discovering whole new realms of possibility in a game where humans have 'toiled the fields' for literally millennia and where it was generally considered that all major strategies and techniques were already discovered, long ago.
And then, an alien comes along and shows us that all this time we were only working within a confined pocket of possibility. Makes you wonder what other blind spots we have in other areas we think we know everything there is to know.
Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.
p.s. There's also the "AlphaZero plays Go" YT genre that's just as fun.
