An interesting line from this article on pattern matching, including
computer Go:

“The great cognitive scientist Herbert Simon, who won the Nobel Prize
for Economics, recognised this as needing to build up chunks of little
patterns, and needing at least 50 000 of these to reach expert level
at anything. We now think it is more than 100 000 patterns.”
