  • hipp0 said “@lavalamp. It seems a bit inconsistent for you to believe that AlphaGo will win 5-0 with a 85% chance and only 88% that AlphaGo will win at least 3 games. Do you have a guess for the win rate?on 2016-02-04

  • lavalamp said “@hipp0, I think the chance that alphago ends up +/- 300 elo of Lee Sedol is very low. I’ll be very surprised if alphago wins but still loses 1 or 2 games.on 2016-02-19
  • Raahul_Kumar estimated 90% and said “AlphaGo Distributed is 1202 CPUs and 176 GPUs vs 48 CPUs, and 8 GPUs of the original. The original was already good enough enough to beat a 2 Dan pro 5-0.on 2016-02-19

  • Tapetum-Lucidum estimated 13% and said “Even if AlphaGo’s win probability is 80%, 0.80^4 = 0.41. It’s unlikely to win all four remaining matches.on 2016-03-10

  • Tapetum-Lucidum said “If Lee Sedol is even a little bit better than AlphaGo, e.g., if he has a 0.56 probability of winning a game against AlphaGo, we’d have P(4 games won by AlphaGo) = 0.44^4 = 0.037.on 2016-03-10

  • Raahul_Kumar said “Shocked. I hope the Deepmind team will release what happened, and what the weights of the neural net were leading up to that mistake. I wonder if this is a drawback of training neural nets?on 2016-03-13
