Chess coaching has been revolutionized by AI in recent years, with a wide range of current tools available to help players at all levels improve their game. In this article, we’ll explore some of the most popular AI-powered chess coaching tools available today, as well as what the future holds for this exciting field.

Current Tools:

  1. – This popular online chess platform offers a wide range ofcoaching tools, although it can hardly be called AI, includes personalized training plans, interactive lessons, and computer analysis of games.
  2. Chessable – This online chess learning platform claims it uses AI to help users learn and remember specific chess patterns and moves more effectively. It also offers personalized training plans and progress tracking.

The platform also offers a range of training modules and exercises, including puzzles, endgame studies, and opening drills, to help players develop their skills and improve their understanding of the game.

Personally, I feel we are at the cavemen stage just discovering fire. These companies have yet to invest heavily in real AI tech like ChatGPT, Mid Journey, Copy.AI etc because the cost is astronomical. Microsoft just invest 10 Billion USD into AI tech. But these chess companies can start small like what they are doing now with minilmal AI tech. The reason is at this present moment, chess players have not really embraced AI as coaches. So I don’t see AI catching fire in chess coaching like what it is doing now in the field of Natural Language Processing, text to image generation, etc. But it’ll get there eventually…

Future Tools and Tech:

  1. Virtual Reality Chess – With the development of virtual reality technology, players may soon be able to immerse themselves in a fully-realized 3D chess environment, complete with AI-powered coaching and analysis tools.
  2. Machine Learning-Based Coaching – As machine learning continues to advance, we may see more sophisticated coaching algorithms that can adapt to each player’s individual strengths and weaknesses, providing truly personalized coaching experiences.
  3. Brain-Computer Interfaces – In the future, players may be able to use brain-computer interfaces to control their pieces on a physical chess board, while receiving real-time coaching and analysis from AI-powered systems.

Overall, the future of AI-powered chess coaching looks bright, with new tools and technologies constantly emerging to help players at all levels improve their game. Whether you’re a beginner or a grandmaster, there’s never been a better time to take advantage of these powerful coaching tools.

Ultimately we will have world class triple A level chess coaches. The problem will be if the human student is willing to sit thru the gruelling coaching sessions.
