Exploring the Boundaries of Chess: A New Approach Powered by Artificial Intelligence

Chess has always been a platform for testing new ideas in artificial intelligence. Recently, mathematician Sir Roger Penrose’s puzzles caught the attention of computer scientist Tom Zahavi. Zahavi, a researcher at Google DeepMind, has been exploring innovative approaches to problem-solving using AI.

Zahavi and his colleagues have developed a way to connect multiple decision-making processes using artificial intelligence. They have created a system consisting of ten different AI systems, each optimized and trained for different strategies. The results of this new approach have shown that it outperforms even AlphaZero, showcasing superior skills and creativity in solving Penrose’s puzzles. These abilities stem from the automatic collaboration within the system – when one approach encounters a hurdle, the program simply switches to another.

Allison Liemhetcharat, a computer science researcher at DoorDash, specializes in multi-agent problem-solving in robotics. She affirms that such an approach makes sense, as having a population of agents increases the likelihood of solving puzzles that one or more agents are familiar with.

This work demonstrates that teams of AI systems can effectively tackle complex problems that go beyond the domain of chess. “This is an excellent example of searching for more than one way to solve a problem – such as winning a chess game – and the benefits it brings,” says Antoine Cully, an AI researcher at Imperial College London. He compares it to an artificial version of a brainstorming session among humans. “This way of thinking leads to creative and efficient solutions that would be overlooked without this practice.”
