Google’s AlphaGo that beat world’s most significant human go player just lost a version of itself that never had a single human lesson. The “AI research” can do better than humans.
The Google is making progress in the field of machine learning at a startling rate. The company’s AutoML recently dropped jaws with its ability to self-replicate, and DeepMind is now able to teach itself better than humans who created it can.
Google’s Alpha Go Zero beaten the Alpha Go in 40 Days
The DeepMind is a machine behind both versions of Alpha GO with the latest evolution dubbed Alpha Go Zero which sounds like a prequel to manage.
The original Alpha Go is a monster of technology with 48 AI processor and the data from thousands of go matches built into it. Over time and under the direction of humans it began to learn the game and nuanced strategies.
Eventually, Alpha Go became so advanced; it was able to defeat the world’s top human player and establish AI’s supremacy in a game so complicated it makes chess look like checkers.
In short, Alpha Go is pretty legit.
The brilliant minds at Google decided to be the best wasn’t good enough; they “evolved” Alpha Go into “Alpha Go Zero.” It was able to defeat Alpha Go at its own game only 40 days later.
The most shocking part of Alpha Go Zero has only four AI processors and only data it was given were the rules of the game. No one taught it how to play or fed it thousands of matches or techniques to study.
According to Google’s blog:
This technique is more powerful than previous versions of AlphaGo because it is no longer constrained by the limits of human knowledge. Instead, it is able to learn tabula rasa from the strongest player in the world: AlphaGo itself.
The AI plays Go against itself, improving with every single match. After playing millions of matches it is unfailing. Both versions of machine play game at a level that’s considered superhuman.
The speed with which Google’s AutoML and DeepMind have taken “self-learning” to the next level is wonderful and terrifying at the same time.
The speed at which Google’s AutoML and DeepMind was working has moved to next level and it has also taken “self-learning” to an amazed and at the same time horrible level.
