AlphaGo’s historic third game win against the world’s best Go player



       Hello peps !!! I was gobsmacked when i heard the news a computer has defeated the world champion.yeah !!! Its something awesome to hear ,AlphaGo has made an historic third game win against the world’s best Go player . Demis Hassabis, DeepMind’s CEO and founder, today announced the historic news that its machine, AlphaGo, won its third game in a row versus 18-time Go world champion, Lee Sedol. With the third win under its belt, that’s the five-game match now sealed. A machine has officially beaten the world’s best player at a game which is widely considered to be very difficult to teach a machine.



What is AlphaGo ?

     AlphaGo is a computer program developed by Google DeepMind in London to play the board game Go. In October 2015, it became the first computer Go program to beat a professional human Go player without handicaps on a full-sized 19×19 board In March 2016, it beat Lee Sedol in the first three games in a five-game match, the first time a computer Go program has beaten a 9-dan professional without handicaps. However, it lost to Lee Sedol in the fourth game.


        #AlphaGo won game 3 and the match! Historic moment. In complete awe of Lee Sedol’s incredible genius, and proud of the amazing AlphaGo team!

  That takes AlphaGo up 3-0 versus Sedol, who initially expressed surprise at losing the first game, but was left “speechless” following the second. This victory is the second landmark win for AlphaGo, following its first 5-0 win against another human player in the latter months of 2015. 


       Unlike a game of chess, machines can’t be taught to play Go by algorithms alone. AlphaGo needed to learn 30 million or so moves, as well as learning to create its own strategies, like a human player would. Like a person playing the game, AlphaGo developed its own strategies by playing internal games countless times and developed its own methods. What’s interesting about watching AlphaGo play is that it doesn’t think like a human, and so doesn’t play like a classically-taught Go player would.


    Hey its more interesting now, yeah !!! Match 5 between AlphaGo Vs Le Sedol Livestreaming  is on for you on march 15, 2016 . Enjoy the treat !!!! Computer Mind VS human mind .
