AI beats European Go champion but the exciting aspect
is how it trained itself to get better and can play many
other games:

"The first classic game mastered by a computer was noughts and crosses
(also known as tic-tac-toe) in 1952 as a PhD candidateís project. Then
fell checkers in 1994. Chess was tackled by Deep Blue in 1997. The
success isnít limited to board games, either - IBM's Watson won first
place on Jeopardy in 2011, and in 2014 our own algorithms learned to
play dozens of Atari games just from the raw pixel inputs. But one game
has thwarted A.I. research thus far: the ancient game of Go. Invented in
China over 2500 years ago, Go is played by more than 40 million people
