Go is a board game from China that’s over 2000 years old. It’s complex as hell: there are more possible positions in the game than there are atoms in the universe. So news that a Google AI has beaten a human master at the game is fascinating/terrifying.

I’ve spent almost 100 hours in the Witcher 3, wandering the streets of Novigrad, galloping through Velen’s windswept woodland, sailing between the isles of Skellige. Yet in all that time, I never really stopped to enjoy the game’s quieter moments.
Overlaying screenshots and photos with Google’s “Deep Dream” algorithm is now something everyone’s abusing and one perfect choice from the world of video games is the original Quake. The game’s dark, haunting, full of crazy textures and this process just adds an extra level of trippiness to it.
In 2011, hardcore fans started a video series chronicling tricks and glitches possible during the Halo: Reach campaign. Today, that series draws to a close with a new, over-the-top conclusion that tests how far Halo’s artificial intelligence can go.
Well this is embarrassing.
Really, it's just a matter of time before Google's "DeepMind" artificial intelligence learns how to wreck us all.
We are training robots to excel at outer space future war. In a video game. This is sure to end well for humanity.
BabyX is not a real baby. It is a simulation of a baby — one that learns, reads facial expressions and gets bored. It is also frightening to behold.
This is big. A computer program has successfully managed to fool a bunch of researchers into thinking that it was a 13-year-old boy named Eugene Goostman. In doing so, it has become the first in the world to have successfully passed the Turing Test.

More and more, jobs everywhere are becoming automated—and it's only going to get worse as technology becomes more capable and advanced. What are the chances your job could be taken by a robot, machine or AI, though?
In an ideal world, video games are advanced enough to give us "smart" enemies—you know, the type of foes that provide a meaningful challenge because they use actual tactics. "Dumb" AI, by contrast, is often critiqued and made fun of—most players have head-shaking stories about a game with enemies that run straight at…
In Spike Jonze's film "Her," anyone can buy operating systems that come equipped with artificial intelligence—and this AI is usually so amicable that it's not uncommon for people to fall in love with their AIs. But if an AI developed the personality of Seth Rogen, like in this video by Paul Gale Comedy? It would be…

Starting from nothing, a computer taught itself to read the instruction manual for Civilization and saw its rate of victory jump from 46 percent to 79 percent.
As the world continues its love affair with Watson. the Jeopardy champion computer, The New York Times creates a simple online game that demonstrates how an artificial intelligence can outsmart a human at a slightly simpler game.So what does this Rock, Paper, Scissors robot teach us? Even a game that…
