Abstract

Computer Chinese chess is an application of artificial intelligence. The playing strength of many Chinese chess programs is at the level of human masters or grandmasters. However, it is not easy for a human player to learn Chinese chess skills from these strong programs because their outputs are no more than moves and score values. It is necessary for a student to understand why he or she loses the game and to receive feedback after practice.

In this paper, we propose an intelligent tutoring system for learning Chinese chess. The system interacts with students by playing games with them and gives comments and suggestions to them during a game without any human intervention. After some iterations of practice, our system reports their learning achievements by analyzing their game records.
