Well, to be more accurate, the AI won the first game in the best-of-five series. The next game is tomorrow (or today, in not-my-time-zone), March 10, 2016. 

I am so excited! A little sad, but excited too!

I just read a similar article about that! The first thing I thought about was Hikaru no Go and what the characters would think about it.

Exactly. To think they work so hard, honing their Go skills, only for their best to be beaten by a computer. Twice now! Obviously, it won't kill Go, but there has to be a bunch of players who have had their worlds turned upside down recently.

Oh man, Yang Hai would be completely beside himself. I'm unsure how to feel about it. I think I'll wait and see what happens with the rest of the games and then try to figure it out. XD

It was bound to happen. But Go isn't just about winning, it's also about creating a great game. Like in all Zen things, it's the journey not the destination. Sometimes the HnG characters forget that and so do the RL folks, I guess.

And he just lost the 2nd game! I know what you mean. It's both exciting and regretful at the same time. But the machine age marches on, I suppose.

Hah, I'd missed this post! And heard of this today and came here to post about it... well, should have known someone's done it.

I went today to eat after the training with my haedong kumdo group, and found out that our, um, head-guy in Finland plays go. And he gave us a bit of a lecture about this matter. xD After a few beers. It was a very enthusiastic and very interesting lecture (okay, so, not a lecture, but that's the only word I can think of right now).

Apparently in the second game the AI made a move that made Lee Sedol stand up and leave the room for 7 (I think) minutes. And a commentator had said he had never seen a move like that (and I was going there, hand of god? Did a computer play hand of god? xD Well, maybe not quite.)

I really hope Lee Sedol will win tomorrow's game. They're going to play all five anyway, and I wonder if he really can do his best in the last games if he has lost all three games in a row. I'm even half-tempted to watch it (it can be livestreamed here, but... I don't think I'm going to get up at 6 am for this. xD Might take a look on what's going on when I do get up.

Yes, this is exciting! And a bit sad, as you said.

And AlphaGo just won the third game... :/

Well, at least he'll be remembered as the world go champion (i.e. a really good player) who lost to a computer.....

Lee Sedol won the fourth game. ^^
The beginning of the press conference was a bit funny, some people were actually chanting his name, and he laughed and said that he's never been congratulated this much for winning a single game. xD ...I think that reflects how much everyone was hoping him to win and how relieved they were when he did.

It makes me ridiculously happy that one of the Chinese pros commenting on Game 4 (Gu Li) referred to the hand that turned the game in Lee Sedol's favor as the hand of god.
