Abstract

In this paper, we present a new algorithm for parallel Monte Carlo tree search (MCTS). It is based on the pipeline pattern and allows flexible management of the control flow of the operations in parallel MCTS. The pipeline pattern provides for the first structured parallel programming approach to MCTS. The Pipeline Pattern for Parallel MCTS algorithm (called 3PMCTS) scales very well to a higher number of cores when compared to the existing methods. The observed speedup is 21 on a 24-core machine.
