IEEE CIS Tainan Chapter / IEEE CIS Taipei Chapter

Short Description

Since 2008, National University of Tainan (NUTN) in Taiwan, Taiwanese Association for Artificial Intelligence (TAAI), and other academic organizations have hosted or organized several human vs. computer Go-related events in Taiwan and in IEEE CIS flag conferences, including FUZZ-IEEE 2009, IEEE WCCI 2010, IEEE SSCI 2011, FUZZ-IEEE 2011, and IEEE WCCI 2012. In 2008, MoGo challenged three games against Mr. Chun-Hsun Chou (9P) at NUTN. MoGo lost all of the three games (one 9x9 and two 19x19). But in February, 2009, the computer Go MoGo won Chun-Hsun Chou (9P) with 7 handicap stones. Through the past held activities, the Computer Go programs accumulate considerable quantities knowledge of the opening book. In addition to observing how many advances have been made in artificial intelligence, the competition held at TAAI 2012 also estimated the human’s Go level via playing with computer Go program. Because Go is the deepest known game for the classical “depth” criterion, so it is “the Most Strategic Game”. Nowadays, humans are still stronger than computers, in particular for the big 19x19 board, where strategic elements matter a lot. We will see how far computers are from humans now.
