Total play AlphaGo and Ke Jie three times against each other, spread over three days. The second pot is Thursday played on the last Saturday.
The competition between Googles self-learning computer, and the world champion Go is part of a Google-organised conference about the board game in China. During the event talk to the American techgigant also about the underlying artificial intelligence of AlphaGo.
Also on Friday a special contest in which two Go-players play against each other, each with the help of AlphaGo. Later that day, take five Go-to players on AlphaGo.
The self-learning computer knew last year to win the Korean Go-grandmaster Lee Sedol, 4-1. In response, challenged Ke AlphaGo.
Profit in the game of Go is seen as a major milestone for artificial intelligence. Self-learning algorithms are also tested on more complex games, such as the computer game StarCraft.
