Google's AI takes on champion in fresh Go challenge



Google DeepMind's AI system, AlphaGo, has won the first of three matches it is playing against the world's number one Go player, Ke Jie.
It follows its historic win against Lee Se-dol last year, described by experts as a breakthrough moment for AI.
The AI won by just half a point in its latest match.
Ke Jie described the AI as "like a god of Go players", while DeepMind co-founder Demis Hassabis thanked him for a hard-fought match.
"It was a such close game, an exciting game and showed how much work Ke Jie put into preparing for the match," said Mr Hassabis in a post-match press conference.
"It was interesting for us to see him using moves from AlphaGo's previous games, and we were intrigued to see how AlphaGo deals with its own strategies used - huge respect to Ke Jie for pushing AlphaGo to its limits."
He added that the ultimate plan for AlphaGo was a wider deployment "in areas of medicine and science".
