I was talking yesterday with Molly Wood about that computer that beat the world’s best player at Go — one of the most complicated board games in the world.
The robots won the first game, and I joked about how I was ready for my robot overlords, remember?
Yeah. The computer won again today.
The human who got beat, Lee Se-dol, said, “I really feel that AlphaGo played a near-perfect game.”
Robots overlords, y’all. Robot overlords.
