Abstract

Recently, a backgammon bot named Palamedes won the first prize in backgammon at the 16th Computer Olympiad. Palamedes is an ongoing work aimed at developing intelligent bots to play a variety of popular backgammon variants. Currently, the Greek variants Portes, Plakoto and Fevga are supported. A different neural network has been designed, trained and evaluated for each one of these variants. This paper presents the details of the architecture and the training procedure for each case. New expert features as inputs to the networks are also introduced, whereas experimental results demonstrate improvement over previous versions of Palamedes.
