My month-long quest to become a chess master from scratch
Max Deutsch

I’m confused by this article. I think the tone is earnest. But at the end of the article, you write…

“It turns out that 34 hours isn’t quite enough, but, knowing what I know now, I don’t think it’s too far off. I’d estimate that it would take between 500–1,000 hours to become a human chess computer capable of defeating the world champion (assuming that an algorithmic approach at this level of gameplay is possible… the verdict is still out).”

Is this still something you think?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
