[D] What if AlphaZero search was restricted to human level?
In the Alphazero blog post, there is a graphic comparing the amount of search per decision between grand-master humans, Alphazero and traditional chess engines. Alphazero is in the middle. At first glance, the implication seems to be that humans are still better at “intuitive” play than Alphazero. But then again, Alphazero is significantly stronger than any human player, and so I wonder how well Alphazero would perform if restricted to the same amount of search as a human player.
There is a plot in the AlphaGo Zero nature paper that shows that the raw network on Go with no search has an elo of 3000, almost as high as AlphaGo Fan. That seems to indicate that AlphaZero with the same amount of search as a human player might already be super-human. Especially since I suspect that there might be diminishing returns to search.
Am I missing anything? Might AlphaZero have beaten humans at “intuitive” chess as well?
