Computer wins final game against SKorean Go master


SEOUL: The Google supercomputer AlphaGo won the final game of its five-match challenge against South Korean Go grandmaster Lee Se-Dol on Tuesday, to take the series 4-1. After Lee managed to pull one back for humanity in game four, AlphaGo returned to its best destructive form, using the much-hyped “intuitive” artificial intelligence (AI) of its formidable neural networks to outwit the 33-year-old Lee. A visibly upset Lee held his head in his hands at the table after resigning at the end of a five-hour battle. It was a disappointing finale for the South Korean who has 18 international titles under his belt and is widely considered one of the greatest Go players of the modern era.
