Dear faculty and students,

We look forward to seeing you Next Tuesday, April 25, at noon in NSH 3305
for AI lunch. To learn more about the seminar and lunch, please visit the AI
 Lunch webpage <http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~aiseminar/>.

On Tuesday, Noam Brown will give a talk about Libratus

Title: Libratus: Beating Top Humans in No-Limit Poker

Poker has been a challenge problem in AI and game theory for decades. As a
game of imperfect information, poker involves obstacles not present in
games like chess or go. No program has been able to beat top professionals
in large poker games, until now. In January 2017, our AI Libratus
decisively defeated a team of the top professional players in heads-up
no-limit Texas Hold'em. Libratus features a number of innovations which
form a new approach to AI for imperfect-information games. The algorithms
are domain-independent and are widely applicable to any strategic
interaction involving hidden information.

Noam Brown is a PhD student in computer science at Carnegie Mellon
University advised by Professor Tuomas Sandholm. His research combines
reinforcement learning and game theory to develop AIs capable of strategic
reasoning in imperfect-information interactions. He has applied this
research to creating Libratus, the first AI to defeat top professional
poker players in no-limit Texas Hold'em.
