Abstract

Wéiqí, Baduk or simply, Go. Over two thousand years old, this challenging game of strategy and tactics has taught warriors, monks and intellectuals to focus, concentrate and plan. Far more complex than chess, there are more possible games than there are atoms in the known universe. Computers can now equal the performance of chess players, but none can equal us at this deceptively simple game. But one program is beginning to change our views of what is possible. In computer competitions this multi-armed bandit has stolen first prize more often than any other. It’s MoGo, or Monte Carlo Go.
