Great Dao Commander

I learned a bit about the history of Go recently and became fascinated by it. It's a simple game with nearly infinite strategy that some of the greatest conquerors used to develop a sharp mind. It's an ancient game that takes a lifetime to master, if it is ever mastered.

It was only a matter of time before artificial intelligence (AI) took notice. This thing learns from its mistakes while it plays by itself at the speed of light. The impacts of having AI learn Go is much ... more than they can imagine.

Imagine Go is used for business competition, where companies like Amazon start building infrastructures with distribution centers to prepare to surround UPS, Fedex, and the post office and take them out. However, UPS has this same artificial intelligence capability, and it realizes what's about to happen (becoming surrounded and captured) and responds by buying out Chevy (assume that it makes the vehicles amazon prime contracts for local delivery). And then the battle royal between juggernauts of logic keep going at it.

Humans will barely understand the AI's moves eventually. The examples I gave are just one degree of separation so it is easy to understand. However, overtime it may suggest seemingly illogical, but strategically correct, things like that you sell just under half your company to partner with Coca-Cola. The reasoning for this is because it gives you access to a supply chain technology patent that you can use to sue your competitors out of business, but have enough ownership that you can buy back your company. On and on battling for dominance over the competition. Crazy. Great Dao Commander
