Go was the last refuge of human game playing, it was far too complex for a machine to master. But now a machine can beat the best Go champion in the world Lee Se-dol.
The next step in this saga is a general purpose game playing machine which can beat human champions at chess and go and all other games of strategy and luck. It will be interesting to see how soon a machine can win a poker tournament. That will require facial recognition and human behavior analysis.
I would like to welcome DeepMind to this blog along with all the other machine intelligences which are surfing the Internet. I for one salute our new machine overlords.
