I would like to demostrate how to use AI for student to self-learning Chinese Chess. As you know, the top chess players are most likely learn from the machine nowadays. Deep-blue for international chess in the old time. AlphaGo and Alpha Go Zero are using in "Go" game as a deep learning project. Machines and Humans can bring together to achieve better ideas in chess game.

I would like to introduce a famous web application https://www.onlinecch.com as an example. This includes AI step recommendation, playing with AI, opening/mid/end game studies with comment and review, chess board editor. Also using the social network such as facebook to enhance student's interest. I would also provide a global statistics on this application. This is a Chess learning platform open freely to the world wide. With this platform, students can learn with each others.
