Artificial learning


The most sophisticated AIs in the world start out by making random guesses. But they guess with confidence, learn from their mistakes, and never take it personally when it turns out they’re wrong.

The only other edge they have - besides their inhuman single-mindedness and ability to speed things up by adding extra computers - is that they practice. They do a lot of it extremely quickly. And before you know it, they’re the best Go player that’s ever existed.
