Google DeepMind
The second match of the Google DeepMind challenge match starts later today in Seoul, South Korea at 13:00 KST; 04:00 GMT-1 day (8th March) 20:00 PT, 23:00 ET. Ready for live.
After shocking the world by defeating Lee Se-Dol—one of the greatest modern players of the ancient board game—in their opening match on Wednesday, the AlphaGo computer proved it was no fluke with another victory after a gruelling four-and-a-half-hour encounter.

(Want to PLAY GO) Match Details
In October 2015, our program AlphaGo won 5-0 in a formal match against the reigning 3-times European Champion, Fan Hui, to become the first program to ever beat a professional Go player in an even game.


Now AlphaGo will face its ultimate challenge: a 5-game challenge match in Seoul against the legendary Lee Sedol, the top Go player in the world over the past decade. For full details, please see our press release.

The matches will be held at the Four Seasons Hotel, Seoul, South Korea, starting at 1pm local time
 (4am GMT; day before 11pm ET, 8pm PT) on March 9th, 10th, 12th, 13th and 15th.

The matches will be livestreamed on DeepMind’s YouTube channel as well as broadcast on TV throughout Asia through Korea’s Baduk TV, as well as in China, Japan, and elsewhere.

Match commentators will include Michael Redmond, the only professional Western Go player to achieve
 9 dan status. Redmond will commentate in English, and Yoo Changhyuk professional 9 dan, Kim Sungryong professional 9 dan, Song Taegon professional 9 dan, and Lee Hyunwook professional 8 dan will commentate in Korean alternately.

The matches will be played under Chinese rules with a komi of 7.5 (the compensation points the player who goes second receives at the end of the match). Each player will receive two hours per match with three lots of 60-second byoyomi (countdown periods after they have finished their allotted time).

 Each match is expected to take around 4-5 hours.


AlphaGo first came to prominence with a 5-0 drubbing of European champion Fan Hui last October, but it had been expected to struggle against 33-year-old Lee who has topped the world rankings for most of the past decade.
The computer uses two sets of "deep neutral networks" that allow it to crunch data in a more human-like fashion—dumping millions of potential moves that human players would instinctively know were pointless.
It also employs algorithms that allow it to learn and improve from matchplay experience.

Hailed as the "match of the century" by local media, the showdown at the Four Seasons Hotel in Seoul is being closely watched by AI experts as well as tens of millions of Go fans mostly in East Asia.
The matches are being as broadcast live on major TV and cable channels in South Korea, Japan and China, with many Go fans rooting for Lee.
"He is fighting alone against dozens of the world's top scientists and computers with massive processing power... I can't imagine how much pressure Lee is under," one online commentator wrote during Thursday's game.
Lee appeared to struggle early on after AlphaGo made several moves that were "shockingly unconventional", said Kim Seong-Ryong, a Go commentator and professional player.
"If you conducted a survey of all the 1,300 professional Go players in the South, Japan and China, not a single person would have chosen that move," Kim said after one of the computer's unexpected plays.
