3 apple and microsoft are having some power problems. here's your c - net tech update. 3 google just made one giant leap to outsmarting mankind. i'm bridget carey. this is your cnet update. google's artificial intelligence division deepmind created a computer that achieved what no one thought a computer could do -- beat a human at the most complicated board game, the ancient chinese game of go. this is such an impressive breakthrough because go is unlike any other game for a computer to process. computers began to beat humans at games back in 1952 with tic-tac-toe, (video from google 00:35-01:44) then it mastered checkers in 1994. and in 97 ibm's deep blue won at chess against champion garry kasparov. and in all those situations, the computer is using a brute force method of computing - it is looking at every single possible move to calculate the best play. but a computer cannot do that with go. this 25-hundred-year-old game of black and white stones has too many options to consider all possible moves. the goal is to
6:17 am
board than your opponent, but there are more possible positions than there are atoms in the universe. that's 10 to the power of 170. so the artifical intelligence must find a balance between recognizing the important moves, but also just playing smart, without knowing all outcomes. it's sort of like our intuition. google's system, called alphago, took on the current european go champion fan hui and beat him five times in a row. hui said google's machine did make some mistakes, giving him confidence, but in the end, he couldn't beat the machine. next up google's alphago will travel to south korea to battle the top go player in the world. but it's not all about games. this ai processing power could be applied to real-world problems, like helping humans tackle questions in medicine. experts didn't think computers could do this for another ten years. so every other tech story i have today just won't be as cool in comparison. but we can get through this without being mean to the other stories, right? alright. so paypal's venmo can now be used to pay for things in other apps. so the same app that you use to pay back your friends can now pay for online purchases? not quite. it only works with two apps, gametime and munchery. i don't know what the heck a munchery is, and i don't know if i want to know.and there is some apple news the company is recalling some models of it's ac wall adaptor sold with macacand ios devices, because of a shock risk. it's not for plugs sold for the united states or uk. it's for outlets in europe, korea, australia, new zealand, argentia and brazil. that's not the only recall - microsoft is recalling some surface pro power cables for overheating problems. yeah, google wins all news. that's
