Program vs Professional


Table of contents


In late 2015, Google Deepmind's AlphaGo project played several games against Fan Hui winning the match. In early 2016, AlphaGo beat Lee Sedol 4-1. Around New Year's 2017, a version of AlphaGo played as "master" on Tygem, going 60-0 against a wide array of top professionals in rapid games.

Prior to AlphaGo's success, professional go players played a small number of serious matches against computer go programs, often against the winner of a computer go tournament. In 2014 and 2015, the top programs needed a handicap of about 4 stones on a 19x19 board.
