Re: Alphazero news

BS. You obviously never worked in a multi billion dollar company research department. You never get outright rejection, never, not for Science not for Nature, not for any other journal. You have no idea what you are talking about. As someone who exclusively spent a whole life in academia and had ne...

Re: Alphazero news

That is not true. It's definitely possible to get the paper accepted without reviewers all being happy . But the publication policies of Nature & Science probably shouldn't be the main topic here. Oh yeah? How many Science or Nature papers do you have to your name that did not have the approval of ...

Re: Alphazero news

Is it because people who wrote those 'fully decent' papers are not Google-branded? But in my view a 'decent paper' is still a decent paper even if it is published on a morning newspaper. You have no idea how is to publish in "Nature" and "Science" (Deep Mind publishing in both on this same theme). ...

Re: Alphazero news

You're aware that this paper was submitted a year ago, right, long before the RTX series was announced? Google had no say the lead time here; that was up to the journal. Not true, the paper was submitted in March, RTX was announced in August, but unofficially it was very well known that 20xx genera...

Re: Alphazero news

I'm not sure how you arrive at that conclusion. Google in general open-sources software for a lot of reasons, probably fairly similar to how other companies that deal with OSS works. Look at the amount of stuff flowing into the Linux kernel—is that for “only for PR purposes”? If so, that's really e...

Re: Alphazero news

I think it goes deeper than that. If someone, even someone whose knowledge and technical savvy you deeply respected, had told you a few years ago that they could get a program that was nearly one thousand times slower in NPS to compete and even beat the best of the day on a PC, I am guessing you wo...
