You might have heard about our recent games with AlphaGocache in China, at the Future of Go summit. No only did we play the legendary Ke Jie, but there were also two new and exciting formats: Team Go and Pair Go.
This match was also very exciting on the technical side because we had improved AlphaGo to the point where we ran it on a single machine in the Google Cloudcache - that's one tenth of the computation powercache compared to the distributed version we used in the last match!
Personally, I also really enjoyed the Pair Go format, both when I tried it myself and watching the game with professional players.
But first things first, let's start with the games against Ke Jie. As expected, these were some of the highest quality games of Go I had ever seen, really exciting to watch.
