YouTube will livestream Google’s AI playing Go superstar Lee Sedol in March

Google will provide YouTube livestreams of its artificial intelligence (AI) software playing games of the ancient Chinese board game of Go against Lee Sedol, the highest ranked Go player in the world. […] Google did not publicize the matches that its AI played against French Go champion Fan Hui — despite that the software swept the human 5-0, leading to a paper in the prominent scientific journal Nature. Sedol, of South Korea, is much more well known than Hui — and it does make sense to build on all of the media attention that Google received as a result of the Nature paper. – Jordan Novet, VentureBeat
