Chess is one of the world's most popular games. Its popularity and complexity make it an interesting research domain for artificial intelligence. The number of board positions we can get to from the initial board state is larger than the number of atoms in the universe! Chess playing machines have been the subject of human interest for hundreds of years, but only on the last few decades have they been able to compete with (and beat) the world champions. Chess programs now have their own tournaments.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) could increase global GDP by 14 percent, or an astounding $15.7 trillion by 2030. This is due, in large part, to productivity gains from AI automation and workforce augmentation. AI will change the world, but it takes time to implement and train it. It's important for your business to understand how, when, and where to implement Artificial Intelligence, and it's often best to start small. The world at large is still learning how best AI can be used to benefit society.
