Google computer program called AlphaGo beat the world’s best player of what many consider the world’s most sophisticated board game called “Go.” AlphaGo is scheduled to play its human opponent, the 19-year-old Chinese prodigy Ke Jie, one more time on Saturday in the best-of-three contest.
But with a score of 2-0 heading into that final game, and earlier victories against other opponents already on the books, AlphaGo has proved its superiority.
A small consolation for Ke was that he played a near perfect game for the first hundred moves, according to the scientists who designed AlphaGo.
Demis Hassabis, the cofounder of DeepMind -the artificial intelligence arm of Google’s parent, Alphabet Incorporated is the creator of the AlphaGo Software.
This victory for AlphaGo makes us rethink about how Artificial Intelligence can take over human jobs one day.
