Strategy Generation and Evaluation for Meta-Game Playing

Barney Pell
2011 Künstliche Intelligenz  
Meta-Game Playing (Metagame) is a new paradigm for research in game-playing in which we design programs to take in the rules of unknown games and play those games without human assistance.  ...  To this end, we have defined a class based around the chess-like games, like Chess, Checkers, Chinese Chess, and Shogi.  ...  This problem is based around the class of symmetric chess-like games. The class includes the games of chess, draughts, noughts and crosses, Chinese-chess, and Shogi.  ...
