人机大战硝烟再起,柯洁能否捍卫人类尊严 | Ke Jie vs. AlphaGo: 8 things you must know

CCTVNEWS 2017-05-17

谷歌公司研发的围棋程序阿法狗(AlphaGo)在2016年3月战胜韩国围棋大师李世石后一战成名引起世人关注。


一年后,阿法狗把人机大战的硝烟引到了中国,4000年前围棋诞生的地方——中国顶尖棋手应谷歌公司的邀请迎战阿法狗。


After defeating South Korean weiqi (Go) grandmaster Lee Sedol, AlphaGo is now bringing the challenge to weiqi home country China, where the game was invented about 4,000 years ago.


China's top player Ke Jie, who is also the world's best player, has accepted Google's invitation to go up against its artificial intelligence system AlphaGo next week.

柯洁能否在强大的阿法狗面前捍卫人类尊严,

阿法狗能否再次创造奇迹击败人类围棋大师,

关于这场人机大战,以下八点你一定要知道。

Here are eight things you should 

know about the match.

Time & Location 

五月下旬,乌镇“华山论剑”


The match is scheduled for May 23 to 27 - next Tuesday to Saturday.


The location is also worth noticing. It's set in east China's Wuzhen - a town with romantic scenery, a venue for the World Internet Conference. 


Rules

人机大战,规则为何?


Three matches will be carried out, even if one side wins the first two and claims victory.


Each side has three hours to make decisions in a match, meaning a single match can last more than six hours.


Apart from Ke, AlphaGo will also play against other Chinese grandmasters.

Prize

百万美金,虚位以待


If Ke beats AlphaGo, he will be awarded 1.5 million US dollars.


AI summit--峰会,畅谈未来


On the second day of the session, there will be an AI summit where DeepMind, AlphaGo's creator, will talk with Chinese AI experts about the future of AI.


Preparation

两强相遇,摩拳擦掌


As some of you know, AlphaGo utilizes deep learning to master weiqi. The system has the ability to continue evolving by playing itself. A million matches can be played in a day, which, obviously, is a great number.


DeepMind will not attend any pre-session matches with Ke.


On Ke's side, no details have been revealed in relation to his preparations. The only thing we know is from the Chinese Weiqi Association, that they provided a quiet environment for Ke to carry out preparations.


Confidence

此役柯洁已经“胸有成竹”


During AlphaGo's match with Lee Sedol last year, Ke said that he's confident he can beat the machine.


But after online matches with "Master", the nickname of AlphaGo on a Chinese weiqi platform, Ke's attitude changed dramatically.

What can AlphaGo do 

other than playing weiqi?

除了围棋,阿法狗还能做什么?


According to DeepMind, the algorithm of AlphaGo can be applied to more general purposes. 


DeepMind is said to be cooperating with video game companies to produce more AI that can beat the best humans. The company will also try to apply their research on medicine, like curing diabetes and cancer.

Will AlphaGo play 

against Chinese weiqi AI?

阿法狗是否会面对中国智能围棋


No, Google has made it clear.


Chinese tech giant Tencent has developed its own deep learning weiqi machine, the Fine Art, which can also beat professional players.
