Palamedes - Play backgammon variants against award-winning expert AI.
The aim of the Palamedes project is to determine if it is possible to create expert game AIs for popular backgammon variants using techniques similar to what is used by strong backgammon programs. The project currently supports the Greek Tavli variants (Portes, Plakoto, Fevga) as well as other popular variants like Narde, Nackgammon, Hypergammon, Takhteh and Tapa. Each game's expert AI is build using neural networks trained by millions of self-play games using advanced reinforcement learning techniques.
