ChessNetwork : In chess, the use of clocks are pretty standard. I don't see any being used for Go. How long does a game of Go last for typically?

Luke William : How long until I get a robot wife?

wii guy : but can it beat hikaru ?

ilker yoldas : So it begins..

Xiclotrode : Just give me a superhumaly intelligent dating service to help me find a perfect mate.

SlipKnotRicky : Cool. a game that you play with Mentos and M&M's...................

Daily memes : The computer who mastered CS:GO

Bitcoin Israel : "It's probably the most complex game humans play" - utter nonsense. I'm not sure what measure of complexity he's thinking of, but if it's something like "average number of possible moves per turn, to the power of the average number of turns per game" (or some refinement of this metric), or maybe "number of possible positions", games like "Civilization" are by far more complex. This by no means is intended to diminish Go or the achievement of AlphaGo - it's a fine game, manages to be very deep with extremely simple rules, and has so far eluded computers - but let's get the facts straight.

RuggedALAN : i have mastered go fish

JoCo : If it can beat a professional go player it can dodge a wrench. XD

Bob Hearn : "Mastered go" might be a bit of a stretch. Let's see some results against say Korean 9ps. But yes, very impressive, and it won't be long now, looks like.

neon32 : "It was stronger than perhaps we were expecting" - Not really what you want to hear when dealing with AI.

mastertheillusion : This is chess on steroids. Next machines will make great jokes. And soon enough they will excel at everything we do. And we will turn into them as we touch the stars.

Indonesia : Go is the game of black and white mentos, yummy

Terry R : I would be hesitant to call Go the most complicated game that humans play. The game 'Diplomacy' also has a ridiculous amount of degrees of freedom as well as requiring other skills that AI cannot handle yet (natural language processing). There have been attempts to make AI for Diplomacy but they have not been great.

Jeff Liggett : I, for one, welcome our computer overlords.

Ozymandiias : Alright computers, come take over the world already.

Crowark : If you had two of these machines playing each other would it be the same game every time? Or is there a level of randomness to the choices it makes even when it looks 20 moves into the future? I would really be interested in in seeing what would happen.

SpySappingMyKeyboard : Well I guess computers can now collect $200. Because they have... Passed Go

Nam Thai : Just nitpicking: the objective is not to control more than 50% of the board, but to control more than your opponent does. For example, Black controls 45% and White control 40% => Black wins. E.g. seki is more usual than one would think.

iiii : Reading about all of the AI successes in last years, I never could get why everybody is so excited about devaluation of human abilities in the growing amount of fields...

Mikuru Sunny : Can't believe I just watched the promotional video for Skynet and kinda amazed by it...

syawkcab : "We're quietly confident that who knows what will happen."

Mnnvint : Kind of disappointed that we didn't hear about this until after the fact, and that they chose to go the traditional way with a Nature paper instead of sharing every little advance immediately at arxiv as seems to be the (happy!) norm in ML these days. But very, very excited to read more about their approach, and a BIG congratulations is in order!

Ameena N : Baduk! Reply 1988 fans anywhere?

Aamir Khalifa : It's NOT a particular computer that beat the player.... it's the algorithm. Stop spreading f****ng ignorance about Computer Science. Algorithms are developed entirely independently of any particular computer. A computer is just a dumb machine that runs the algorithm, really, really fast.

f1jeh2313hj1b31 : Good to see what have computers that can defeat an Asian. Hopefully that's how we can defeat the Chinese, rather than having to nuke them.

Filip Voska : This game should be played with M&Ms or some other candy. You can then eat opponent's candy when you capture it.

Halfand8 : What a dork "more configurations on the board than there are atoms in the universe." Pffft as if! There's only more configurations than there are atoms in the VISIBLE universe...

Arash Saidi : Amazing!

Giga Gerard : Nice to know how large a handicap the human world champion will need to get an even chance to the computer champ.

kisamehoshigaki09 : It even just beat Lee Sedol 4 games out of 5. Couldn't believe it.

Baichuan Ren : So, what about those GO computer games AIs? They certainly don't tree search each move till the end game. What are those programs about?

thomassaurus : oh, and here I was thinking Othello and Go were the same game with a different name.

Parkour Theory : So awesome!

ikickss : Lee Saedol is an interesting choice: he is the most unpredictable and creative player at that level. Commentators have hard time "explaining" his moves.

supersheeep : Put the computers against each other to see the greatest go match ever.

Ki Hyun Kang : lee sedol

Kyle Grewal : When will this become public? I want to practice go without setting up with a board.

Isaac Garcia : "it was stronger than perhaps we were expecting." @5:00 that is not something I want an AI developer to say, ever.

Weizai Weizaitan : the terminator is coming guys

f3rrazm1chae1 : The title is about a computer, but they didn't show anything about any computer, just some nerds taking. Wasted my time here.

Eric Morrison : Google vs. Bernie Sanders

brian janson : The exponential is speeding up. This wasn't supposed to happen for another 10 years. Also, check out the new Atlas video from Boston Dynamics.  As for Go, I'll pass. Now where is my $200?

CaptainRidley : "more atoms in the universe" How do we know that we know that actual number?

chemical mike : bollocks.., its just a mathematical algorithm. true A.I. breaks away from strict mathematics because true intelligence requires something called free will. any consciousness that is a slave to strict rules will never be free to think and grow intellectually. and therefore never be intelligent.

Sleepy.Z : It's not artificial intelligence.  It's an expert system.  Let's not use buzzwords so lightly, YouTube and Google.  And to the developers that actually approved of the AI terminology, ...  come on guys, you know better.  Don't be so egotistical.

David Ongaro : Where are the 5 Games against Fan Hui?

John Tromp : I've only mastered counting Go:-(

Nathan Rogers : SAI IS BACK! He's trapped in a computer!
