Google has challenged China’s top Go player to a series of games against its artificial intelligence technology.
It said the software would play a best-of-three match against Ke Jie, among other games against humans in the eastern Chinese city of Wuzhen from 23-27 April.
It’s fascinating how much progress has been made in AI and go.
One comment. The article says:
It can be very difficult to determine who is winning, and many of the top human players rely on instinct.
This is wrong. Early in a game, it’s difficult, but players learn how to count, and when someone is down by enough after 100-150 moves, they resign. By the time you get to that stage, it’s pretty clear – at least for pros – what the final score will be.
