​And the Google ​people didn't program AlphaGo to be better GO players than
they were because they didn't have that ability. Instead AlphaGo learned
and got better in exactly precisely the same way that novice human GO
players do, it studied the games of previous grandmasters and constantly
played games against itself; the only difference is the machine learned
better and faster than a human could.
