AI Beats Human Master | Alpha Go by DeepMind | Supervised Learning | Episode 7

Super Prompt: Generative AI w/ Tony Wan

Feb 6 2023 • 44 mins

Alpha Go AI plays the game of GO against a human world champion. Unexpected moves by both man (9-dan Go champion Lee Sedol) and machine (Alpha Go). Supposedly, this televised Go match woke up China's leadership  to the potential of AI. In the game of Go, players take turns placing black and white tiles on a 19×19 grid. The number of board positions in Go is greater than the number of atoms in the observable universe. We discuss the documentary Alpha Go which tells the story of Alpha Go (created by DeepMind, acquired by Google), and the human Go champions it plays against.  Who will you cheer for: man or machine? I speak again with my friend Maroof Farook, an AI Engineer at Nvidia. [Note: Maroof’s views are his and not that of his employer.]  Please enjoy our conversation.
