In Spring 2016, an artificial intelligence developed by Google (Artifical Intelligence = AI) was better than a South Korean world champion in a particularly complicated strategic board game. In a detailed interview, Demis Hassabis, developer of the Google DeepMind AlphaGo program, explains to what extent human intuition and creativity are involved in the creation of artificial intelligence.
