Artificial Intelligence’s Evolution and the AlphaGo


“Google’s AI won the game Go by defying millennia of basic human instinct” reported a major tabloid recently. Google’s AlphaGo is the new ace in the field of artificial intelligence and is, now, considered as the future of the field. AlphaGo is a computer developed by a company named DeepMind which was acquired by Google in 2014 and was renamed as Google DeepMind. AlphaGo recently created an atmosphere of hullabaloo in AI world when it defeated the world champion Go player Lee Sedol 4-1 setting a world record. AlphaGo works on a combination of machine learning and tree search techniques and uses its previous games’ experience to render moves.

Artificial Intelligence has developed at a very fast pace since last 3 decades. The term artificial intelligence was coined by John McCarthy, an American computer scientist in 1956. AI is a broader concept and very less is known about this field. Most people relate AI to robotics while the fact is that artificial intelligence is much more than just its application in robotics.
