In a huge feat of machine learning, AlphaGo, an AI developed by British company DeepMind, won a Go tournament 4-1 today against 18-time world champion South Korean player Lee Se-dol. This marks the first time a computer program has beaten a 9 dan human player, earning a 9 dan title of its own.
Congrats to the newest Go grandmaster!
For a long time, the ancient Chinese game of Go was considered the one game in which a computer could not ever defeat a human - unlike Chess, with its more limited movements and more established strategies, the number of possible unique Go games is over 10^700!
To Lee Se-dol’s credit, defeating a supercomputer capable of calculating that even once is a rather incredible feat, don’t you think?
