AlphaGo software beats Champion

In a stunning development, the AI program AlphaGo has swept the European Go champion and Chinese professional player Fan Hui 5-0 in a formal match. “This signifies a major step forward in one of the great challenges in the development of artificial intelligence – that of game-playing,” said the British Go Association, which released the news on January 27, based on findings reported in the scientific journal Nature this week (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-dKXOlsf98 for a video).

The official google announcement is at: https://googleblog.blogspot.com/2016/01/alphago-machine-learning-game-go.html

Not to be outdone, Facebook earlier made this release: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10102619979696481&id=4

Google has now issued a challenge to world champion Lee Sedol for a $1M match and Lee has accepted. It will be played in Seoul in March.
