Evanston Go Club watches historic AlphaGo-Lee Sedol match

Wednesday March 9, 2016

The Evanston Go Club hosted a watch party for the first Alpha Go-Lee Sedol game at the home of club president Mark 2016.03.10_evanston-watch-partyRubenstein on Tuesday night. “We all feel like we’ve been part of go history tonight,” said Rubenstein. “It’s an incredible achievement, one which most of us thought was many years away, if at all. I’m stunned, and a little sad. I always liked being able to say that computers couldn’t beat the strongest humans. It’s a new world!” Watching the game were Nathan Chan, Jeff Pratt, Moon Ki Cho, and Scott Ogawa.
