Has AI outsmarted humans?

Earlier this year, Google's computer program AlphaGo ended a historic match of the ancient Chinese chess game Go with South Korean grandmaster Lee Sedol, taking a 4-1 win.

The human Go champion beat the AI in the fourth match, but the winner was already determined as Lee lost the first three games of the five-game match.

This was definitely not the first case of AI beating humans in intellectual games.

In 1997, IBM's super computer "Deep Blue" beat Garry Kasparov with two wins, one loss, and three ties in a chess match.

In 2006, five masters of Chinese chess were beaten by "Tian Suo" computer, developed by Inspur.

In 2011, IBM's Watson competed on "Jeopardy!" against former winners Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings and won.

Following the sweeping victory of AlphaGo, a commentator said it is still too early to say that AI has surpassed humans in Go because Lee fought AlphaGo with little knowledge of the computer program.
