Google’s AlphaGo Finally Loses to Korean Lee Sedol | Re/code

It was a best-of-five match; the fourth and fifth games don't count

"The AlphaGo program, created by Google’s DeepMind division, includes much of the same technology the search giant uses for other products with human-like characteristics, such as photo recognition software and virtual assistant technology. Beating a human Go champion proves the company’s tech is very, very advanced but losing to a human go champion proves there’s still room for improvement.

Just how human is AlphaGo? DeepMind co-founder Demis Hassabis tweeted during the match that AlphaGo got “confused” and didn’t realize it had made a mistake until almost 10 moves later. Just like a human, the machine is expected to learn from its mistakes."
