    What's a computer going to do with $1m? Is this the start of Skynet, and it's going to use its winnings to start building the robot army?

    It's an amazing feat - I'd never thought that we'd see a Go-winning computer in my lifetime.

    It took me five minutes to figure out the topic was a game called Go...

    EDIT: I've now looked it up here and by crikey, that is the most intimidating game I've seen in a while. And it only has two rules!

    I couldn't follow the point of the 60 move example, which I suppose just goes to show my level of concentration/intellect.

    It's all over. Google's AlphaGo beat the Go master 3-0 in the best of five tournament.

    Another British success - remember, DeepMind was a British company before it was bought by Google.
