Game Trees Two players (MAX and MIN) exchange moves ( turn-based ) The tree showing every conceivable development by the players The foundation of the tree demonstrates the beginning circumstance The offspring of the root show conceivable moves by MAX The offspring of the youngsters demonstrate conceivable moves by MIN Tree keeps substituting until it achieves end-diversion circumstances

Slide 9

… MIN moves (which rely on upon MAX\'s last move) … First case MAX moves

Slide 10

Game Trees (2) Concepts: State : hub in tree Terminal hub : amusement over Utility capacity : esteem for result of the diversion. MAX : 1 st player, augmenting its own particular utility MIN : 2 nd player, minimizing Max\'s Utility : 1  Max won 0  Max and Min draw - 1  Max lost (Min won)

Slide 11

Minimax Finding flawless play for deterministic, immaculate data amusements Idea : pick move to position with: most astounding utility for MAX = best achievable result against a levelheaded rival Example : Utility is a number somewhere around 2 and 14

Slide 12

Properties of Minimax Always locate an ideal technique for MAX (or MIN)? Size of diversion tree? b: spreading variable (most extreme number of moves a player can make in his/her turn) m: # turns in a normal diversion Yes (if tree is limited and rival is sane) roughly b m For Tic-Tac-Toe , b ≈ 9, m ≈10. In this way, the extent of the tree is 9 10 . Any PC these days will locate the ideal procedure: Always draw against a discerning rival For chess , b ≈ 35, m ≈60. Therefore, the span of the tree is 35 60 . Too substantial for PCs today. Along these lines tree must be mostly built. Look in front of 6 turns for most PCs

Chess : Deep Blue vanquished human title holder Garry Kasparov in a six-diversion match in 1997. Dark Blue inquiries 200 million positions for each second, 24 processors, heuristics to guide development of amusement tree with help of human terrific experts Othello : human champions decline to go up against PCs. PCs are too great. Go : human champions decline to go up against PCs, who are too terrible. In go, b > 300 , so most projects use design learning bases to recommend conceivable moves.

Saddle Points "Of seat focuses careful you ought to be, youthful one gee" Saddle point : Developing a procedure for playing the diversion that guarantees triumph (or non rout) each time Example: Tic-Tac-Toe Results in loss of significant play It is a hypothetical plausibility however by and by can\'t made sense of it is alright But now and then is emanant conduct The Diablo II magician … Victory !
