Go summit in Wuzhen to keep going
Alpha-pair Go and team match were played on the 4th day of the Go summit in Wuzhen. In the pair game, Lian Xiao & AlphaGo defeated Gu Li & AlphaGo by resignation. Human players finally had a taste of “beating AlphaGo”. Later, the team match between AlphaGo and five world champions (Zhou Ruiyang, Tang Weixing, Mi Yuting, Shi Yue and Chen Yaoye) took place. After fighting for 254 moves, AlphaGo won the game to keep showing its AI power.
This kind of game-style is technically called “Consultation Go”. Each side consists of several players. They are allowed to talk and discuss during the game. Different from the usual, today’s game was played 5 vs.1, which actually put more pressure on the “World Champion” team.
Although five brilliant minds combined and fought very hard, that did not create any chances for them against the invincible AlphaGo.
The last game at the Go summit will be start on the 27th of May, Ke Jie is to take white playing against AlphaGo.
