Indeed – Congratulations to Google DeepMind!

It’s truly an immense achievement.  I’m struggling
to think of other examples of reasonably mature
and strongly contested AI challenges where a new
system has made such a huge improvement over
existing systems – and I’m still struggling …

Congratulations people at DeepMind :-)

I like the fact that alphaGo uses many forms of learning (as humans do!):
- imitation learning (on expert games, learning an actor policy);
- learning by playing (self play, policy gradient), incidentally generating games;
- use of those games for teaching a second deep network (supervised learning);
- real time learning with Monte Carlo simulations (including Rave ?).
==> just beautiful :-)

Congratulations Aja.

Do you have a plan to run AlphaGo on KGS?

It must be a 9d!
