Go: Computer Beats Human

On August 14, 2008, in General, by Neil Stevens

The computer Go engine Mogo beat a Korean 8 dan pro in a 9 stone handicap game. I am surprised. I guess only time will tell if the shortcuts this software’s algorithms take can be exploited or not. But still, this is much further along than I ever thought things would be right now.

Once you’re on 19×19, you’re really playing. 9 stone handicap or no.
