In the 11 round of the competition system, the winner can get a prize of twenty thousand yuan, and has the opportunity to be awarded 6 amateur. On the morning of April 24th, the second round of the game was carried out in the second round. The amateur chess player, the amateur chess player, was named as an amateur 8 player, Liu Chao. It was cooled to an unknown player, Liu Chao. It caused a hot discussion in the circle of weiqi and attracted many chess players. A chess player said that when he returned to the game, he found that most of the players who played black Liu Chaojue were in the same way as LeelaZero (a AI software used in Weiqi). Many chess players pointed out that when Liu Chao was playing, the cell phone was always placed in the pocket of his chest, while the mobile phone camera was always aimed at the chessboard. Accordingly, many chess players questioned: the player may have used artificial intelligence software to cheat, and thus won the competition. The Organizing Committee of the competition also paid attention to many questions on the Internet. In the afternoon of April 24th, when the third round of competition was carried out, the organizers of the Organizing Committee asked the player to put the cell phone in his pocket. 24 on the night of 6, the organizers further informed that the competition started from the fourth round of the night, no players in the competition will be placed in the shirt pockets, desktop and other places, violators first oral warning, second direct negative. etails Hu Yuqing said he was reminded by his friend after the incident. Although the organizing committee did not give the conclusion of whether Liu Chao had cheated, the news that contestant Liu Chao suspected of cheating in the game by using AI software and overcoming the amateur chess king Hu Yu Qing was spread. After the end of April 24th, Hu Yuqing recalled two people in the circle of friends. Hu Yuqing said Liu Chao was wearing headphones to listen to music before the match with Liu Chao. A picture in the circle of friends shows that Liu Chaos mobile phone is in the pocket of his jacket and can see the direction of the camera toward the chessboard. For the day failed to defeat Liu Chao, Hu Yuqing said, began to feel that more than three months do not touch chess, hand born, how do not even know all but. But after the end of the chess, Hu Yuqing was pulled by a friend, and a friend told Hu Yuqing that he felt Liu Chao was almost uniform when he was playing chess. No matter the difficulty or the complex response, the speed of chess was almost the same. Accordingly, Hu Yuqings friend suspects that Liu Chao used weiqi AI software to do some harm. After that, some friends told Hu Yuqing that Liu Chao found the way of playing chess from the 60 hand to the final, and the same way with the AI software LeelaZero. Asked why the question was not asked after the question, Hu Yuqing replied that he did not take the initiative to complain, considering that he did lose when he was playing, and all the doubts were found by friends and netizens. He said that after the match, the purpose of the response was to hope that this event can perfect the rules of go in the AI era. In addition, Hu Yuqing also said that the complaint meant that the referee group was required to collect evidence in a short period of time and to make arbitration. It is too difficult for the organizers and the referees to use more time to think and improve the rules. Respond Organizing Committee: cheating is uncertain but the behavior is not in conformity with the rules In April 26th, the Beiqing newspaper reporter called the 2018 Lishui Qingyun Cup Organizing Committee of the national amateur go public tournament. The staff said, it is not possible to say (Liu Chao) that he must be cheating, but according to the information on the network, we dont think his behavior is in line with the rules of the competition, so he asks him to put his cell phone in his pocket, not to the chessboard. The staff told the Beiqing newspaper that a few months before the start of the game, the referees of the organizing committee had discussed the possibility of using artificial intelligence to cheat. At that time, we learned that AI has been used more widely in computers, and we think it may take some time to implement them on mobile phones. But the staff said that in order to prevent the use of artificial intelligence cheating, the organizing committee made a plan to close, confiscate the mobile phone of the contestant, or screen the mobile signal on the scene. The staff further explained that Liu Chao and Hu Yuqing played chess in the second round. After Liu Chao won the game, there was a lot of talk about the use of artificial intelligence on the Internet. At this time we began to notice that Liu Chao was used to put cell phones in the pocket of the jacket and aimed at the chessboard, including people reflecting that he had the same action in another game before, (the referee) began to do something. Doubt. The third round, the staff said, found Liu Chao still in this position. In accordance with the Chinese Chess Associations requirements for professional chess players, I came up to remind him to put his cell phone in his pocket, not to the chessboard, and after he listened, he put his cell phone in his pants pocket. The staff told the Beiqing newspaper that the field observation did not find Liu Chao using the ear wheat during the competition. Of course, he could not exclude the possibility of using the mini ear. However, we are not the law enforcement personnel, and we have no right to use technical means to view his mobile phone, so it is impossible to make a judgment on whether he uses artificial intelligence and can only do a deal based on the previous plan. After the third round of competition, Liu Chao did not participate in the competition, the organizing committee staff tried to contact him, but all did not respond. In the previous rounds, we kept his record, but according to the regulations, after the end of yesterday (April 25th), his qualification of the competition was automatically cancelled. The staff of the organizing committee told the reporters that this incident also gave them a wake up. In the future, the rules of the use of artificial intelligence assistants will be clearly put forward in the event of the competition, and the rules and regulations of shielding the cell phone signal required players are not allowed to bring a cell phone will be gradually perfected. ialogue Liu Chao: I dont want to be labeled as the first person to cheat. Liu Chao, a litigant who was challenged to cheat with AI in weiqi, was interviewed by the Beiqing newspaper reporter on 26 days. It was his habit to put the cell phone in his jacket pocket. He did touch LeelaZeros AI software, but only had two games. He claims to be able to win Hu Yuqing but he has decided not to play chess anymore. Its a habit to put a cell phone in a coat pocket. Beiqing Bao: some people question that you put your cell phone in your jacket pocket during the competition. The camera is facing the chessboard, cheating on weiqi AI software. Is that so? Liu Chao: This is my personal habit. I always put my cell phone in my jacket pocket, so many people put it on the phone. Some people may feel that there is something wrong with the chess score, so they are linked to the location of the mobile phone. Beiqing newspaper: what is the day of the game? Liu Chao: I came in 20 minutes earlier. I had a wired earphone on my cell phone. I listened to the song for a while before the game. After the game, I put my headphones next to the table, and I put my cell phone in that (coat) pocket. These games have been played in this way. I was asked to produce evidence to prove that I did not cheat. I said I did not, but there was no evidence that I had cheated. Beiqing Bao: when the game is on the third round, your cell phone is put into the pants pocket by the staff. And then you lost the game. Liu Chao: there was a referee in the game and asked me to receive my mobile phone in my trouser pocket. Then the third round of the game, I found that there have been people watching, and then more and more people around, even I turn back, you can find a person standing on the side of me, face quickly attached to my face, and I almost met him when I turned back. From their actions, I had already felt what was going on and I was probably wondering if I was cheating. Then some people said, (after the cell phone was collected) I slowed down, I was thinking how to get down, and the atmosphere around me felt no way, the psychological pressure is great, so I lost. Previously exposed to LeelaZero software Beiqing Bao: when some netizens analyze your match with Hu Yuqing, the match between AI and LeelaZero is coincided. How do you see it? Liu Chao: even if my chess and that software method 100% coincides, it is possible, but in fact, my method is impossible to coincide with the software 100%, even if only a point of deviation, the difference is also huge. 20 hand chess is different from one hand, and subsequent development and results are different. Beiqing Bao: did you get in touch with LeelaZero before the game? Liu Chao: its impossible to have no contact. The software is so famous. I played two chess games with this software, and the first time I won the imitation chess method, the second time I used the software to win the technical obstacle on the eigen (a basic go method), and two times as a winner. I played these two games, and I felt that the software had too many disadvantages. I have also used some go software to practice the opening calculation of chess, and basically all kinds of go software have been contacted. Beiqing Bao: what do you think of it now that the outside world is challenging you to cheat with weiqi AI software? After being questioned, there is no way to play chess. Beiqing Bao: are you still participating in this rhyme cup competition? Liu Chao: No, after I finished the third round, I turned on my cell phone, and my friends circle had blown up, all of which questioned my cheating. If I go on playing chess, every game of my game is a game that cant be lost. I wont win, and theyll guess how I cheated, and once I lost, I couldnt turn over. If I want to play chess that I cant lose, I cant get out. I cant continue playing chess in this state of mind. Beiqing: arent you going to continue playing chess? Liu Chao: I deleted all the go software, threw the go books, and threw them away. I can no longer play chess. What if I clarify? Their views on me will not change. I thought about litigation, but I was very uncomfortable mentally, and the cost was very high. The final reward was not necessarily long, and I thought it would be too late. Anyway, it only affects my playing chess, and nothing else. Source: Beiqing Net - Beijing Youth Daily editor: Gu Ying _NN6577
