Katherine Noyes | March 8, 2016
In this ancient Chinese game, there are more possible positions than there are atoms in the universe. Is this humanity's last stand?

Many experts, however, aren't so concerned. AI may be well-equipped to win at Go, but as Shashi Upadhyay, CEO of AI startup Lattice Engines, recently said, “Humanity has a lot of things to be proud of — being ‘Go’ champion doesn’t need to be one of them.”

Stay tuned for more coverage as the tournament unfolds.
