Hanabi is a cooperative card game with hidden information that requires cooperation and communication between the players. For a machine learning agent to be successful at the Hanabi, it will have to learn how to communicate and infer information from the communication of other players. To approach the problem of Hanabi the machine learning methods of Q-learning and Evolutionary algorithm are proposed as potential solutions. The agents that were created using the method are shown to not achieve human levels of communication.
