Computer won a 9x9 game of Go against professional 5th DAN Catalin Taranu

During the Go Tournament in Paris, staged between 22 and 24 March 2008 by the French Go Federation (FFG), the MoGo artificial intelligence (IA) engine developed by INRIA – the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control – running on a Bull NovaScale supercomputer, won a 9x9 game of Go against professional 5th DAN Catalin Taranu. This was the first ever officially sanctioned ‘non blitz’ victory of a ‘machine’ over a Go Master.

Among many others, we have two Hungarian SZTAKI guys in the background, Levente Kocsis and Csaba SzepesvĂ¡ri.

Their contribution can be spotted in the MoGo page, and it was earlier mentioned by many sources.
