• Human go champ scores surprise victory over supercomputer

    0

    SEOUL: A South Korean Go grandmaster on Sunday scored his first win over a Google-developed supercomputer, in a surprise victory after three humiliating defeats in a high-profile showdown between man and machine. Lee Se-Dol thrashed AlphaGo after a nail-biting match that lasted for nearly five hours — the fourth of the best-of-five series in which the computer clinched a 3-0 victory on Saturday. Lee struggled in the early phase of the fourth match but gained a lead towards the end, eventually prompting AlphaGo to resign. The 33-year-old is one of the greatest players in modern history of the ancient board game, with 18 international titles to his name — the second most in the world.
