Sounds for AlphaGo
Goban sounds and noises
In about an hour (8:00 PST March 8, 2016), an historic match will begin between a program - AlphaGo - and a human - Lee Sedol. Lee is one of the top Go players today. AlphaGo is a neural net. The stakes are high - $1 million in prize money, and the pride that, so far, no machines have ever beaten the top human players at Go.
5 matches will be played over the next few days. You can watch them streaming live now here:
or later on the DeepMind channel:
Here are 72 sound samples (in a sample map) I made with my Goban that could accompany the game. The sounds are stone strikes, slides, swirling bowl noises and a Goban resonance.
