DailyDirt: A Minute To Learn, A Lifetime To… No, Go Is Much Harder To Learn, Actually

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

For many years, the ancient game Go has been held up as the game that artificial intelligence can’t win. AI has beaten humans at several games quite handily, even games like Poker and Jeopardy! that should give humans a bit of an edge. Still, Go hasn’t been cracked… yet. Any bets on when humans won’t be so smug about Go?

Wowza an article about go! I’ve been waiting for good go programs for a long time. You know, the interesting thing about computers being better at poker than go, is that poker is a game of incomplete information (which you wouldn’t think computers would be as good at) while go is a game of perfect information – both players have complete knowledge of the current state of the game (where all the pieces are, etc). That type of game is much more in the computers’ wheelhouse.
