These deep neural network programs, consisting of multiple layers of algorithms, have proven to be incredibly adept when it comes to solving complex problems, such as defeating the world champions of strategy board games like Go and Chess. Last year, Google’s DeepMind AI platform scored an unexpected victory over the world’s best Go player. This accomplishment was so surprising because the number of potential moves in the game is greater than the number of atoms in the universe. P...
