Abstract

We consider the validation of randomly generated patterns in a Monte-Carlo Tree Search program. Our bandit-based genetic programming (BGP) algorithm, with proved mathematical properties, outperformed a highly optimized handcrafted module of a well-known computer-Go program with several world records in the game of Go.
