Google's AI AlphaGo Bids Goodbye To Gaming
Google AlphaGo is the search giant's very own artificial intelligence (AI) developed to catch the world’s most demanding strategy game. It was developed by DeepMind Technologies, which was acquired by Google in 2014. After making a history of beating the world’s elite Go players, AlphaGo bids goodbye to the game boards.
As far as records are the concern, AI AlphaGo wins a three straight match series against Ke Jie, a Chinese Go Master, at The Future of Go Summit that happened in Wuzhen, China. AlphaGo will try to catch up on some of the society's most difficult problems, according to a blog posted by DeepMind last Saturday. The team working under the success of AlphaGo plans to use to the AI program to produce "advanced general algorithms" that will eventually help scientists with problems.
According to CNET, the issues like "finding new cures for diseases, dramatically reducing energy consumption, or inventing revolutionary new materials" will soon be solved with the aid of AI. AlphaGo's bravery at beating human Go Masters has been taken as an example of how an AI can be. Especially in some specific applications, it is considered to be better than the smarts ability of mere humans.
Google is very proud with its AlphaGo after making headlines last year when it beat Lee Se-dol, one of the well-known Go Masters. It has also been quietly playing with some of the world's best Go players online. In fact, it participates in a contest under a pseudonym. And for the record, AlphaGo beat Ke, a 19-year-old prodigy, not just once, but twice, as reported by TechCrunch.
While AlphaGo is already over with the competitive play, it's not leaving the Go game community empty handed. DeepMind announced that it will publish a final academic paper before the end of this year. Aside from that, it's also working on a teaching tool that will expose AlphaGo's analysis of Go positions. DeepMind and Google also released a special set of AlphaGo vs. AlphaGo games that contain "many new and interesting ideas and strategies" for all the Go masters and players.
