AlphaZero teaches Stockfish a lesson in the French Defense

What system would AlphaZero employ against Stockfish's French Defense. Apparently Alpha Zero is a big fan of grabbing space, opting for 4.e5, the Steinitz variation. By move 13, the game is already critical for Stockfish. Alpha Zero accumulates a great deal of space over the board, and with the center closed it sets out to play on the wings. The two big questions for Stockfish are ultimately, where will your king reside, and what role will your queen-bishop play? AlphaZero has something to say about all of this.
