Sometime ago, the world was surprised when Alpha Go, a program designed to play Go won a tournament against Lee Sedol, one of the best players in the world. That was a huge achievement, since the game of Go has an incredible number of combinations, and also because Alpha Go learned to play by watching people play.

Now, the same programming team developed a new version, Alpha Go Zero. This one learned playing against itself, without any human intervention. During the first hours, the program rediscovered most of the strategies human use, from beginner to master.

But the second day something strange happened. Alpha Go Zero not only reached the level of grand master, and was able to win the old version, Alpha Go, but it also threw away the human strategies and develop... something never seen. The current strategies it employs have left humans baffled, unable of understand what's behind those plays.

We're in presence of something unique an inhuman. Something promising and scary.
