It’s time to be ready for the final match. The artificial intelligence and its impact on the society is not any less. And latest reviews shows that AI can also be tested in the traditional games as well. Here comes the relevance of Deepmind’s AlphaGo algorithm. The company’s most successful software is all set to play a series of matches against some of China's best Go players this week. And to people who don’t know what this game is all about, Go is an ancient two-player board game that was invented in China some 3,000 years ago.
It wasn’t that long before that the Google’s Artificial Intelligence has beaten a top Go player and now it is planning for a match against the whole team it seems. DeepMind, which is an AI research group within Google's parent company Alphabet, is planning on strategies for the successful accomplishment of the same. This technology has also been the topic of discussion at the “Future of Go Summit" — a five-day festival of Go and artificial intelligence.
"For the first time ever, AlphaGo will also be playing other game formats, such as Pair Go and Team Go," said DeepMind CEO Demis Hassabis in a YouTube video. "We're hoping that after these matches, AlphaGo will have discovered some beautiful new moves and beautiful new ideas that can then take Go to another level."
Also AlphaGo's capabilities demonstrate the power of the underlying AI technology. DeepMind's AI has previously helped Google operate its large data centers more efficiently, and Google can use AI to improve its own applications, like its search engine and Google Translate.
