AlphaGo vs Lee Sedol

Lots of great videos on YouTube of the match between AlphaGo and Lee Sedol. I consider these historic because this level of AI is almost humanlike in its thinking of playing the game. Wikipedia has a great summary of the first 4 games. It's AlphaGo 3 wins, Lee 1 win.

Game 1

Game 2

Game 3

Game 4

Game 5

AI Overloads look to beat Go champion

In case you've been living under a rock, Google's Deepmind is about to make AI history. Google developed AlphaGo, a deep learning program, to challenge Lee Sedol.

Lee Sedol is an 18 time world champion and AlphaGo is beating the pants off him. AlphaGo just won it's 3rd game (out of 5) and it's looking like it will sweep all 5 games.

I'm quite astounded and amazed. Just two years ago I told Ingo that I thought it wouldn't happen for decades, but he had more faith in AI research and development than I did. In fact he reminded me of it! :)

Perhaps the best comment about this is what Greg Piatetsky of KD Nugget opined. Betting against AI is a losing bet, it's just a matter of time before it can solve any problem.
