My old MoyoGo blog

I chronicled the development of my Machine-Learning program for the game of Go there. I was extremely ill in those years, so much so that I feared any day could be my last (I’m still quite sick but not to suicidal despair and utter physical and mental torment anymore). Some functionality of the blog is lost but the postings are available via the archive.

The blog mentions some of the venom directed towards myself, as my software became a threat to its competitors and I offended too many sensibilities. I was eventually “deplatformed” and forced to abandon its development. At that stage the program had sold around 1,000 copies and grossed $35,000 – barely paying for the cost of my development machines and investments in software.
