The European champ was defeated with 5-0. It was really a shame for the champ. DeepMind is a British-based artificial intelligence startup bought by Google in 2014. Go is really a simple game but has a vast number of outcomes. As a result, it is really tough to design a artificial system that can efficiently play Go.
