Advances in Computer Bridge: Techniques for a Partial-Information, Communication-Based Game
by Bethe, Paul M., Ph.D., New York University, 2021, 97; 28257166
Abstract (Summary)

Bridge is an imperfect information game with elements of competition against opponents as well as cooperation with a partner. Despite the application of many tenets of artificial intelligence, humans have yet to be consistently bested by the computer. This thesis explores AI shortcomings in both the play and bidding phases of the game.In the play, we explore weaknesses in the cutting edge Monte Carlo techniques and explore both inference and learning based solutions.In the bidding, we go beyond existing rule based systems and investigate deep reinforcement learning as a method to learn how to bid.
