Re: Pending Review
I think myself stupid.

What human have is over estimate self and underestimate opponents; Plus unexpected behavior. Computers can't deal with that. I can't deal with unexpected moves either lol.

I take a computer any day. Computers folllow rules and don't throw a tantrum.

When strong Go programs become widely available... a new era for Go
After strong Go programs become easily available on the Internet or for sale to the public, what would happen next is that we will see more kids becoming stronger at the game at earlier ages and then we'll see an increase in the number of strong professionals.  This is what happened to chess. A downside to this is that at chess tournaments we now have to worry about players going to the rest room, pulling out their smart phones and asking their chess-playing programs for advice about their games.

Re: Pending Review
I was a Go player(just for fun) and I still love the game.  I think making the argument that a computer is smarter than a person because they can beat the best in board game is irrelevant.  As the article pointed out, they require huge processing power and neural network that allows them to  learn huge database databases of past games, does that make them as intellegent as humans?

I will continue to recommend people to try to learn the game, the rules and really simple, even though the computer beat the best Go player in the world.  It is a game worth learning.  What do people think of computer beating the best human in board games.  Would we see the best computer beating the best poker player or football fantasy?

Is this AI or something safe?
I'm pretty sure we are inventing SuperMan here; which might be just fine.  I want to know the actual game moves and how the skilled players reacted to them. Did the computer come up with moves the skilled player cannot understand, or did it just do what a good player would do -- only better than its opponent?

I'd be really worried for us if the computer played an unintelligable game.
