THE BATTLE BETWEEN MAN AND MACHINE: AI MEETS WORLD GO CHAMP

Hassabis said the secret is in the difference between the narrow artificial intelligence (AI) of Deep Blue and the general artificial intelligence (GAI) of AlphaGo. Every move that Deep Blue made was coded. If there was an error in coding, the system would fail. Only the goal of the game is coded into AlphaGo’s program and then it must learn through its observations and algorithms how to play and win the game.
“GAI from the ground up is built to be adaptive and flexible and deal with gracefully the unexpected and learn how to deal with that,” said Hassabis.“The goal the system is given here is to maximize the score everything else is learned from scratch its not told anything about the rules of the game,” said Hassabis.
