AI/NN: 'Here to Stay?'

Last week we took a peak at 'Game Changer' Excerpts, from the first book on AlphaZero. This week let's have a video from the Saint Louis Chess Club's Youtube channel, where a panel discusses how AlphaZero impacts the world of chess engines.

AlphaZero: Is It Here to Stay?! (1:00:37) • 'Streamed live on Jan 26, 2019'

The video's description identifies the three participants in the discussion:-

Grandmaster Denes Boros and computer chess expert Jacob Wilkins join Ben Simon to discuss the finer details of neural-network based engines vs. the human mind.

If you follow the link to the original Youtube page (right-click the embedded video), the chat to the right of the video follows the discussion and can be scrolled independently. For more about the host, see Chess - Ben Simon Media. As for the title, 'AlphaZero: Is It Here to Stay?', is there any real doubt?
