Is SKYNET here? Deep neural networks learn to win at GO

GO has been notoriously difficult to crack, because unlike chess, it has a limited number of rules but many more possibilities, yet using deep neural networks, a computer has now won against a champion. The fascinating/frightening thing is that the underlying algorithm/structure is relatively “simple” in AI terms — comparable algorithms have been used in recent years in computer vision: check out MIT’s algorithm giving impressive descriptions of any of your own or online’s pictures. Flickr used a similar algorithm, but had to take it down because people were offended by some mismatches (which basically happen because it almost exclusively works on pattern association principles).
