Deep Pink is a chess AI that learns to play chess using deep learning. Here is a blog post providing some details about how it works.

There is a pre-trained model in the repo, but if you want to train your own model you need to download pgn files and run parse_game.py. After that, you need to run train.py, preferrably on a GPU machine since it will be 10-100x faster. This might take several days for a big model.

Note that the code is a bit hacky (eg. hardcoded paths in some places) so you might have to modify those to suit your needs.

Dependencies

  • Theano: git clone https://github.com/Theano/Theano; cd Theano; python setup.py install
  • Sunfish: git clone https://github.com/thomasahle/sunfish. You need to add it to PYTHONPATH to be able to play
  • python-chess pip install python-chess
  • scikit-learn (only needed for training)
  • h5py: can be installed using apt-get install python-hdf5 or pip install hdf5 (only needed for training)
