computer shogi, consultation algorithm
The validity of the consultation algorithm is shown in computer shogi. The consultation algorithm determines a move by votes of computer shogi players. In this research, we discuss a method that changes player vote weights during a game. To change player vote weights, we use the selection history of the move and the evaluation function value. Experimental results suggests the validity of our proposed method.
