It taught itself to play chess in a few hours hours and then went onto to beat the top computational chess computer. Here is the key sentence.
Indeed, much like humans, AlphaZero searches fewer positions that its predecessors. The paper claims that it looks at "only" 80,000 positions per second, compared to Stockfish's 70 million per second.

Calling Blade Runner...

I have to say that it's monstrous, as a chess enthusiast I say that I wouldn't need it, there's no taste. Of course technological progress will certainly not stop there, we should not be surprised.

I mean something like this http://chessboardjs.com/examples#4001 or
http://chessboardjs.com/examples#1004 but more enhanced than that.
