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.
git clone https://github.com/Theano/Theano; cd Theano; python setup.py install
git clone https://github.com/thomasahle/sunfish. You need to add it to PYTHONPATH to be able to play
pip install python-chess
- scikit-learn (only needed for training)
- h5py: can be installed using
apt-get install python-hdf5or
pip install hdf5(only needed for training)
