Do Not Pass Go
AlphaGo the AI developed to play the ancient board game, Go, crushed 18-time world champion Lee Sedol and the reigning world number one player, Ke Jie. But now, an even more superior competitor is in town. AlphaGo Zero has beaten AlphaGo 100-0 after training for just a fraction of the time AlphaGo needed, and it didn’t learn from observing humans playing against each other – unlike AlphaGo. Anthony and Jeff discuss how it did it, and what it means for the future of AI.
