Ever wonder what it may look like to see the computer opponent in chess working on its moves? This site has done just that. By simply playing a game of chess against the computer opponenent, you get to watch as it itterates through the minimax decision tree.
One thing that’s interesting to see is how the flow lines change as the game progresses. I wish there was more detail about exactly what the color and strength of the lines meant. I also wish that you could compare how the flow lines changed from one move to the next so that you could see how you may have completely shut off certain strategies – or made them less valuable. Still, it’s kind of interesting to watch!
There is a gallery page
that shows some mid-game shots as well so you don’t have to play through a full game to see how it looks toward the end.
