By MCTS, I mean the AlphaGo zero approach, where there is no random playouts. Playouts are completely replaced by neural-network evaluation.


I had understood that. So roughly speaking the point is to replace alpha beta search with UCT search (both can be combined with NN leaf node evaluation).

I think in the past UCT combined with a heuristic evaluation has not worked well in chess (tactics...). But perhaps it would be different with a high quality NN evaluation. It is certainly an exciting thought.
