World’s best Go player flummoxed by Google’s ‘godlike’ AlphaGo AI – War Games

World’s best Go player flummoxed by Google’s ‘godlike’ AlphaGo AI

“This week’s battle, in the eastern Chinese city of Wuzhen between Ke and an updated version of AlphaGo, was preceded by intense speculation about whether the world’s top player could be beaten by a computer.

After his defeat, a visibly flummoxed Ke – who last year declared he would never lose to an AI opponent – said AlphaGo had become too strong for humans, despite the razor-thin half-point winning margin.

“I feel like his game is more and more like the ‘Go god’. Really, it is brilliant,” he said.

Ke vowed never again to subject himself to the “horrible experience”.”
