Go master retires, saying AI ’cannot be defeated’

A master player of the Chinese strategy game Go has retired, attributing the decision to a rise of artificial intelligence that ’cannot be defeated’. In 2016, Lee Se-dol took part in a five-match showdown against AlphaGo, losing four times but beating the computer once. ’There is an entity that cannot be defeated’, the 18-time world Go champion said.

There will always be an entity that cannot be defeated in any game. When two competent humans play Tic-Tac-Toe, it will always end in a draw. To a machine, Go is no more complex than Tic-Tac-Toe, so the best you can do is draw or play forever.
