They're also developing a tool that would show how AlphaGo would respond to a particular situation on the Go board with help from the world's number one player.

The world's best human Go player said playing Alphago felt like playing a Go God. Go is seen as a much more complex game than chess because it relies on a certain level of "human intuition". AlphaGo has managed to win both of these matches as well, sweeping this week's three-match series and marking "the highest possible pinnacle for AlphaGo as a competitive program", as DeepMind has stated in a blog post.

Last March in Seoul, AlphaGo became the first machine to beat a top player at the 3,000-year-old game of Go when it defeated Korean grandmaster Lee Sedol.

Finally, DeepMind will publish a special set of 50 AlphaGo vs AlphaGo games "played at full length time controls" to inspire the Go community.

The evening proved to be a total loss for the Yard Goats, as Binghamton managed to squeak out a 5-4 victory. I mean, yeah, technically that's a strike, but good grief.

With nothing left to prove, AlphaGo's developers from Google-owned artificial intelligence lab DeepMind will now focus on creating advanced general algorithms that could help scientists uncover cures for diseases, reduce energy consumption, and invent new materials. Beyond Google, Tencent is among other tech firms to have unleashed AIs on the game.

With the recent culmination of the final match event at the Go Summit in Wuzhen (China), Google has decidedly pulled the curtains down on AlphaGo's further participation in the Go challenges.

AlphaGo has simply served as the stepping stone for success in the field of AI research and development as DeepMind has more ambitious plans lined up for the near future. Top players, even Ke Jie himself, studied up on AlphaGo's moves and added some to their arsenal. It is reported that the British company could employ AlphaGo in practical applications for everyday use. Last year, it agreed to a data-sharing partnership with the UK's National Health Service, however the partnership has been criticized for giving a for-profit company access to personally identifiable health data of around 1.6 million NHS patients. Now the deal has come under the scanner of UK's data protection watchdog, the ICO. "We can't wait to see what comes next", DeepMind said. DeepMind is planning to publish a final review paper on how the AI developed since its matches with Lee Sedol past year.
