Ke Jie Got Defeted by AlphaGo

The world’s number one Go player Ke Jie got defeated by Google’s DeepMind AlphaGo artificial intelligence.

Ke Jie gave a hard time to by pushing AlphaGo to the limit said Demis Hassabis founder of DeepMid. After finishing the game Ke Jie said, “I’m a little bit sad, it’s a bit of a regret because I think I played pretty well.”

In a 19 by 19 grid of a Go board, the players compete against each other to take control of the most territory. This game is considered world’s one of the most complex games which is even complex to computers than chess.

By playing the Go game over and over again against itself AlphaGo has built up the expertise.

The company’s main objective is to use this Artificial Intelligence to medicine and science.

Prof Noel Sharkey, a computer scientist at Sheffield University said, “It is an incredible achievement and most experts thought an AI winning at Go was 20 years away so DeepMind is leading the field but this AI doesn’t have general intelligence. It doesn’t know that is playing a game and it can’t make you a cup of tea afterwards.”

Prof Nello Cristianini, from Bristol University, added, “This is machine learning in action and it proves that machines are very capable but it is not general intelligence. No-one has built that yet.”

AI with this level of accuracy in playing games have not seen a lot in the past years. May be, they are good at any single thing rather than being good at wide range of things, though few thinks that they might be able to do a lot of things together or solving all the problems.

Prof Cristianini said, “We should focus on the good things that we can get out of them and be careful not to create situations in which we put ourselves in direct competition with machines.”

DeepMind has already begun working with the UK’s national health service to develop apps and other tools for diagnosis.
