Whilst google explicitly saying it is not, the process is. I hope some of the idea could be reflected in this book. Thx.

(In fact I come to here and bought the live book because of it

Actually that is quite hard to start. Hope this is better.

Hi Dennis, I believe almost every technique used in Minigo is covered in the book. As I understand it, Minigo is not a project form the DeepMind team, but was built by interested coders who read the AlphaGo papers, and happened to also work at Google.

One difference with Minigo is that it is set up to run training on a massive computing cluster. So, it will be tough to match its strength without access to similar hardware.
