What is GO ?


GO is a 2-player board game of pure skill, comparable in many ways to chess, but more strategic rather than tactical. It is easy to learn how to play go since the rules are much simpler than chess. One difference is that whilst there exist some really quite strong computer programs to play chess, this is not yet true of go. this inspired my Ph.D. on new methods of programming computers to play games.
