Libratus: Artificial Intelligence Defeats World-Class Poker Players In Historic Match

Carnegie Mellon University Tuomas Sandholm and PhD student Noam Brown developed Libratus. “The best AI’s ability to do strategic reasoning with imperfect information has now surpassed that of the best humans,” said Tuomas Sandholm, a professor of computer science at CMU. After play finished each day, a meta-algorithm would analyse the holes the players had identified in its own strategy. “It then prioritized the holes and algorithmically patched the top three using the supercomputer each night,” Sandholm added.[6]
