there! the dance champ turned judge says she won't be on the panel for season 22... saying she has "a lot of exciting stuff coming that i look forward to sharing." but don't worry. hough says she'll be back! from backgammon to chess, even jeopardy... game-playing computers have always found a way to beat their best human opponents. but the now's andy choi introduces us to the onecomputers couldn't master... until now. < 4.36.55 [nats of traffic light] stop and think about this: the average adult makes 35,000 decisions a day. from what to wear, what to drink, who to call... when to pump the brakes. and when... to go. 3.50.12 [nats of stone landing on board] and for those looking to make even more decisions 4.01.47 "i've scored a victory here." ...there's the ancient chinese board game 'known' as 'go.' 3.36.02 "very simple, but it's also very complicated." well, the 'rules' are simple 3.53.51 [nats of hand grabbing stones] surround a larger area of the board with 'your stones than your opponent. 3.42.54 "that's about all there is to it." and that's where the simplicity ends. 4.05.32 "i was playing games
3:23 pm
just exhausted." because go makes chess look like checkers. google video 0:37 - 0:51 "in chess, the number of possible moves is about 20 for the average position. in go, it's about 200. another way of viewing the complexity of go is that the number of possible configurations of the board is more than the number of atoms in the universe." so when developers at google's artificial intelligence lab "deepmind" started designing a computer that played go, they knew it needed more than sheer number-crunching strength. it had to mimic human decision- making. google video 0:59 - 1:02 "the one way you can think of it is that go is a much more intuitive game." and when google's go-playing bot "alphago" finally beat one of the game's european champions, it once again posed that ever-so humbling scenario. 3.40.06 "we're going to find out if we're finally being taken over by computers." 4.16.30 "i'm not a robot but" 4.04.38 "i think it's verging. i think it's verging..." come on, guys, have a little faith in yourselves! i mean... could a robot play a 'board game 'while' answering questions 'about' that game? 4.13.11 "um, they actually have
3:24 pm
just move?" 3.45.55 "i feel like i'm talking instead of thinking." 4.24.47 "you know it's really hard to, uh, talk and play this game at the same time." okay maybe we're screwed. maybe we're destined to fall into algorithmic anarchy. or maybe. just maybe 4.17.58 "by working together, humans and machines can come to greater heights." 4.28.38 "i would say absolutely, yeah." 4.08.33 "some big moves to be had. i think this is one of them." and that sounds like a 'decisive' win for everyone. i'm andy choi, for the now > google hopes its "alpha-go" program may someday help make decisions in medical diagnostics. for now, the computer will play against go's world champion in early march with a million dollar prize going to the winner. a lot more news coming up on action news live at 3-30... including the latest on that fake teen doctor. he fooled dozens of patients, the media and his coworkers for years. and now, "doctor love's" former business partner is speaking out! and a live look at where a
