The aim of this research is to develop fundamental techniques to enable cooperation and mutual understanding to be actually achieved among artificial intelligence (AI) systems and human experts. Tno utilize AI systems in practice, it is essential to make intelligent AI systems appropriately explain their thoughts, so that human experts can understand and evaluate the suggestions they make. We use the games of Go and Shogi, both of which are no-luck, all-skill games, to evaluate our techniques because AI systems specializing in these domains often perform better than human experts and introduce brand-new theory, indicating forerunners of the future.
