AlphaGo and Machine Learning

This week, I decided to take the “hypertext is your friend” part of the assignment to heart. I, like Jorge, used FOLD to create my companion piece, which I felt was most intuitive for contextualizing information, especially with a topic like machine learning, which has a lot of moving parts.

I decided to create a companion piece for AlphaGo, the AI that defeated world Go champion Lee Sedol 4-1 about a week ago. I also attempted to give some context on another AI technology that’s gotten a lot of press — Microsoft’s Tay — and argued that we’re further from that science-fiction-robots-take-over-the-world reality than some think.
