Chinese AI 10th dan JueYi “AlphaGo” had slain top pros on FoxGoServer!

*the first 10-dan on all Go Server, Jue Yi*



JueYi “绝艺” also known as the Chinese “AlphaGo” developed by Tencent became the first 10-dan on FoxgoServer. JueYi had defeated Yun Jun-sang (尹畯相):clover77, Fan YunRuo (范蕴若):北海的早晨, GuLi (古力):星宿老仙, Chen YaoYe(陈耀烨):谜团, Park JungHwan (朴廷桓):maker and so on.

*Recent Game Records*


JueYi had achieved 18 wins – 2 losses and most of his challengers are World Champion – Top Professionals; and thus according to FoxGoServer’s rules, JueYi has promoted to 10-dan. The incident has even allowed the appearance of Dr.Aja Huang to congratulate the achievement of JueYi by logging in Deepmind.


FoxGoServer Top Ranking Players.

Apparently KeJie had challenged JueYi “offline” not via FoxGoServer and has been informed on his weibo that he has lost almost all the games.

However comparing to AlphaGoJueYi is still weaker.

*Kenji Wu x Joanne Missingham*

KenJi Wu (吳克群) latest song “Lost in Speed” invites Joanne Missingham (黑嘉嘉) as the female protagonist in the MV, 22-years old Joanne Missingham expressed that she has never been into a relationship, and the MV has given her the opportunity to feel one “in-love relationship” with KenJi in addition to his big hugs.

Furthermore, when HeiJiaJia was being asked which part of the scene she had expected the most; she replied the scene where she had to lay on the road expecting car to hit her was definitely fun.



The Surrounding Game 2017

*The surrounding Game Trailer 2017

The ancient game of Go is the most complex and elegant game ever discovered. Though the rules are simple enough to teach a child, the complexity that emerges has inspired millennia of study. For three thousand years, master players in East Asia have handed down the game as an art form to foster patience, creativity, and self-reflection. Today in the elite world of the pros, international tournaments offer hundred-thousand dollar prize purses, and top matches are broadcast on 24-hour “Go TV” to millions of fans in China, Korea, and Japan. But in the West, most people have never even heard of the game… until now.

THE SURROUNDING GAME follows the lives of three young Americans vying to become the first-ever Western professional players. Quirky, cerebral, and disillusioned with conventional views of success, they represent a new generation of players, on the doorstep of adulthood. As the competition intensifies and intricate patterns spill out across the board, the line between reality and imagination starts to blur. Their thoughts turn to anxieties about the future, and lead them on a journey through the game’s ancient past to ask what it means to live a meaningful life. Through an intimate portrait of these young players and interviews with the greatest Go masters of all time, the film explores the search for meaning that Go represents to its players, for whom the game is a distillation of consciousness itself.
