AlphaGo algorithm became world champion for the first game
No official championship this game is not carried out, but this time managed to beat the algorithm Ke Jie, the world's best player in the second, by as much as half a point.
The head of Google Deep Mind Demis Hassabis explained that this time AlphaGo programmed in such a way that it has increased its chances of winning at the beginning of the game, but the program settings and suggest other options AI work. You can, for example, to program it for increase in points of separation.
In the course of the match Ke Jie several times in the match ahead of the program, but AlphaGo after some time began to beat the champion, because the AI was originally programmed to win. Perhaps this is why the difference in the score turned out quite small. If the program is configured differently, it could start winning extra points, increasing towards the end of the game their performance.
In the near future will be two more on the game of the match, in which, in addition to people who attend an artificial intelligence. It is known that during one of the matches of the program immediately once with five players.
The new version AlphaGo significantly improved and compared with that not so long ago, beat 60 players on the Chinese website requires for almost ten times less computing power.
