Everything you need to know before machines take over

Google DeepMind

Ever heard about the board game Go? With a 3,000-year history, this board game is far more complex than chess. That said, some say there are more moves in chess than the number of quarks in the universe. Yet, a Computer Program named Deep Thought beat an International Grand Master for the first time in November 1988 in Long Beach, California. That was 29 years ago. Go on the other hand has been a harder nut to crack, with a supposed number of moves of 10^800 (a 10 with 800 zeroes after it) for every atom in the known universe. Since that fateful November day in 1988, machines had yet to beat a human at their own game.
