Comment: 10^60 figure is wrong (Score 1) 328

by Shimrod (#20937367) Attached to: Cracking Go
If you read the article carefully, you will see that the 10^60 number refers to chess, not go. In go there are 10^170 legal positions. Building a complete game tree would take at least 361! (10^768) nodes, but considering captures, this number grows to a stunning maximum of 10^(10^48) nodes. Good luck with the brute force ;-)

I am a reasonably strong amateur player (currently 3 dan), and I'm willing to bet that no computer will beat me at go in the next 50 years (Assuming I don't get a brain tumor/dementia/etc).
