Go has 200 moves per turn compared to 20 per turn in Chess. Over the course of a game of Go there are so many possible moves that searching through each of them to identify the best play is too costly from a computational point of view. Now a system developed by Google DeepMind has beaten European Go champion and elite player Fan…
