Visualization and Adjustment of Evaluation Functions Based on Evaluation Values and Win Probability
We present a method of visualizing and adjusting the evaluation functions in game programming in this paper. It is widely recognized that an evaluation function should assign a higher evaluation value to a position with greater probability of a win. However, this relation has not been utilized directly to tune evaluation functions because of the difficulty of measuring the probability of wins in deterministic games. We present the use of win percentage to utilize this relation in positions having the same evaluation value as win probability, where the positions we used were stored in a large database of game records. We introduce an evaluation curve formed by evaluation values and win probabilities, to enable evaluation functions to be visualized. We observed that evaluation curves form a sigmoid in various kinds of games and that these curves may split depending on the properties of positions. Because such splits indicate that an evaluation function that is visualized misestimates p...
