Something has changed about Master Habu, a professional shogi player and a chess FIDE Master. Shogi, known as Japanese chess, is a strategy board game for two players. Habu is the only person to simultaneously hold seven major professional shogi titles at the same time and is also the only person to qualify as a lifetime title holder for seven major titles. He reigned over the shogi world for decades, but in the last few years, his winning rate fell from 70% to 30%. People started whispering that his time was over. But this season, he rose like a phoenix from the ashes. His winning rate is back to over 70%. What happened?

It’s known that shogi players use AI to practice and it seems that Master Habu changed his relationship with AI. He notes that, “I thought I’d be a fool not to take advantage of a computer because its strength is calculating from numerous factors that would overwhelm an individual. That said, I think the figures are probabilistic and are not absolute. In fact, there have been quite a few instances of things ending poorly when taking more than a dozen software-suggested moves. So, it remains for players to decide what to do.” While other players memorize AI’s movements, aiming for an instant win, Habu analyzes AI’s ideas and thought process and makes his strategic moves. In fact, he often takes hands AI doesn’t recommend and wins.

How can we apply his strategy to storytelling? Shall we study AI’s stories, too? Have you tried the latest AI chatbot? Honestly, it’s mind blowing. From stories to dialogues and poems, the quality is pretty good. They’re not perfect, but some of them captivated me, made me laugh, and ponder.


What do you think of the copy AI crafted? Do you think I can use some phrases? Can we learn something new from AI’s writing techniques?
