  • Poker experts may have finally met their match: Google’s deep-learning AI called DeepStack
  • Using a type of artificial intelligence its creators describe as “intuition,” DeepStack widely defeated 10 out of 11 professional players from the International Federation of Poker in a game of heads-up no-limit Texas Hold ’em
  • Each player played 3,000 hands against DeepStack
  • In most AI games, such as the chess-playing Deep Blue and Google’s AlphaGo, the board has all the information you need to make a decision
  • But in Texas Hold ’em, the players can’t see each other’s cards – They all have a different view of the game – this more closely mirrors the decisions we make in everyday life, which are often based on incomplete information
  • Another incredible milestone for AI – and just a hint of what the future is to hold
