16 Mar 2017

This week, one year ago, one of the world’s top players of the board game Go took on an artificial intelligence (AI) program from Google’s DeepMind project. Watch the video to find out what happened. The program, called AlphaGo, is a demonstration of machine learning, which can be thought of as the data side of AI. Discover more about machine learning – and how it could be boosted by quantum computing – by reading this article from the March issue of Physics World.
