TopicThe Asian Board Game Go is the new frontier of AI programming, see for instance here. Unlike Chess, the previous frontier, Go is rather unknown in Europe. In this course you will learn the rules of the game Go and the important strategic principles. If you are already familiar with the game, feel free to attend the lecture and just play.
(This course is just about learning to *play* Go , but neither about artificial intelligence nor about how to program a Go engine.)
Pascal Müller is one of the Top 50 players in Germany. While this is completely of no relevance if you are a beginner, it is still good to know.
