    Reports on Taiwan Open 2009 from Arpad Rimmel at NUTN

    The game of Go is one of the last board game where the strongest humans are still able to easily win against artificial intelligence. But researchers have discovered new performing algorithms and computers are catching up really fast. The Taiwan Open 2009 was held in Tainan, Taiwan between the tenth and thirteenth of February. On the first two days of the event, the Go program MoGo made two new world records by winning a 19 by 19 game with 7 handicap stones against the 9P professional Go player Jun-Xun Zhou and a 19 by 19 game with 6 handicap stones against the 1P professional Go player Li-Chen Chien. If computers continue to improve at this rate, one more human stronghold may fall in front of machines in less than 10 years. For more details, please check out below websites.
