Alpha 2048 - Reinforcement Learning in the Browser

Do you remember the game 1024? It was a huge in the early 2010s. A simple game with only one input (up, down, left or right) which made you hate binary. I never made it to 1024, so I thought "Why should I spend my valuable time trying to win this game by manually using my brain? Why not let a machine do it?" I want to take you on my journey from idea through frustrations and pitfalls to my prototype: Alpha2048, working with deep neural networks in the browser with reinforceJS
