AlphaGo wins first two Go matches against Lee Se-dol

This matchup between machine or "artificial" intelligence (AI) and a human player is drawing a lot of attention around the world because of its implications for the future role of AI in a highly digitally networked environment. Arirang Television carried a report on AlphaGo's victory in the first match. I encourage you to view it. More to come on this topic.
