Book Recommendation: Deep Learning and the Game of Go

I have managed to sneak my name on the back cover of one of the coolest books to come in 2019.


Max Pumperla and Kevin Ferguson, Deep Learning and the Game of Go, Manning, published today,  ISBN 9781617295324

I warmly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in deep reinforcement learning. The game of Go is a fantastic use case, that keeps you inspired and on course to the last page.

With a well-thought-out structure and some good humor, Max Pumperla and Kevin Ferguson have masterfully accomplished the task, to write a well readable, comprehensive introduction, that is at no point boring, without leaving out anything important.
