Despite the losing streak that human board game champions have had at the hands of artificial intelligence opponents, the world's No 1 Go player, 19-year-old Ke Jie of China, says he's determined to beat Google's AlphaGo next month.

Ke, the top-ranked human player, will challenge AI program AlphaGo, developed by Google DeepMind, in a best-of-three contest as part of the Future of Go Summit in Wuzhen, Zhejiang province, from May 23 to 27, the Chinese Go Association said on Monday.

The showdown will be the latest between elite human Go players and AlphaGo, which defeated South Korean Go master Lee Se-dol 4-1 in a match in March 2016 before racking up 60 straight wins against human players from China, South Korea and Japan - including Ke - in fast-paced online matches as of January. The upcoming match will be in a different format.
