The genetic algorithm vs alpha-beta algorithm when applied to othello
2013 (English)In: Proceedings of Umeå's 16th student conference in computing science: USCCS 2013 / [ed] Suna Bensch & Frank Drewes, Umeå: Umeå universitet , 2013, 13-25 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
The Alpha-beta algorithm is a commonly used algorithmin two-player zero-sum games, such as Othello, for making AI-players.This article presents the application of the Alpha-beta algorithm and thegenetic algorihtm for Othello with a set of commonly used strategies.The genetic algorithm is in many ways a contrast to the more struc-tured Alpha-beta algorihtm, where the results often appear more as ifby magic. The work presented herein has implemented and run teo AI-players for Othello using both algorithms. The result indicates that thegenetic player outshines the Alpha-beta player when they play againsteach other.
