Search and learning for playing and solving the game of Hex


See here for a brief description for the game of Hex.

Playing and solving are two major themes in empirical AI methods for computer games. The AlphaGo by DeepMind has sparked a series of subsequet successes of deploying deep neural networks to various games, including the game of Hex. Despite the impact their new algorithm has brought to games AI, researchers are natural to wonder what is the next major algorithmic direction for games, and what games are mostly appropriate for this dedication. I advocate that Game of Hex be considered by post-AlphaGo/Zero AI research
