AI Has Go Rating of Over 5100 Versus Best Human at 3696

In 2018, OpenAI discovered that the amount of compute used for AI training doubles every 3.5 months. By comparison, the number of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits only doubles every 18 months, a.k.a Moore’s Law.

The best human has a GO rating of 3695 while Alpha GO Zero has an ELO rating of 5185. Human players were beaten 100 to 0 and AI GO systems can only crush the prior best AI to show improvement.

The hardware cost for a single AlphaGo Zero system, including custom components, is estimated to be $25 million.

There has been an open-source implementation of Alpha Go Zero. ELF OpenGo is the first open-source Go AI to convincingly demonstrate superhuman performance with a perfect (20:0) record against global top professionals.
