Thought for the month

“You cannot have freedom without a rule of law ... and if you don't have it, what you tend to get is corruption and that is death to freedom, it's death to truth, it's death to honour, it's death to democracy.”

Margaret Thatcher, 1 October 1996.

Gone

Are we amazed or concerned by AlphaGo’s 4-1 win over Go grandmaster Lee Se-Dol? Two neural networks operating in tandem give AlphaGo the edge.The first network reduces the effective depth of the search by estimating how likely a given board position will lead to a win without chasing down every node of the search tree. The second reduces the breadth of the game, limiting the number of moves for a particular board position by learning to chose the best moves for that position.  So the first network generates possible moves that the second judges their likelihood to beat the opponent.
 
Personally, I will only be impressed when it beats Barry Cryer at Mornington Crescent.
