The value scoring of positions was previously believed to be impossible.

Alphago used value network to reduce the depth of the search for good moves.
Alphago also uses fast rollouts to play a few thousand games to determine statistics for which moves are good.
The Alphago program is improving by several GO ranking levels every few months.
