Google DeepMind’s AlphaGo is a prominent example of Machine Learning and illustrates the capabilities of advanced AI. In 2016 DeepMind’s AlphaGo programme beat Lee Sedol in a complex board game called Go. Sedol is considered the best Go player in the world over the last decade, however was beaten in 4 out of 5 games by AlphaGo.
Furthermore, there has also been major developments in Deep Learning which is a subset of Machine Learning. In Deep Learning you feed data into a ‘neural networks’ that learns and discovers patterns in data. Deep Learning is the reason we have seen such vast improvements in image recognition, machine translation, and natural language processing. It still has a long way to go but will be key to unlocking many exciting possibilities such as driverless cars, robotics, smart voice recognition, cancer detection and much more.
