Reports on Mogo, a computer program for playing Go
I’ve read quite a bit about computer chess and checkers (although my own program, Milhouse, has been fairly stagnant for over a month). I’ve read somewhat less about systems which play games like backgammon, othello, poker or mancala. But it turns out I’m almost completely ignorant of the state of the art in programs to play Go. Part of it is simple: I don’t play go. It confuses me. But it does have a bunch of interesting characteristics that makes it particularly challenging for computer play. I ran across these links to Mogo: considered one of the stronger players. Looks like I’ve got some more reading to do.
