Big data & machine learning

An overview of AI with a focus on a Java library which uses self-learning playing to learn to play a game of tic-tac-toe without losing. The big hype these days is how machine learning is going to take away everyone’s job in a few years. Robots will be everywhere to do everything. Computers will drive our cars, do our chores, and we are stuck in a life of leisure. Alpha Go recently beat the best player in the world and there seems to be no stopping those smart computers. To understand where us humans stand we should dive into the algorithms used to write Alpha Go. We should then stand back and look at what is machine intelligence. Perhaps humans are going to be in control of their lives for a lot longer than we might imagine.
