in reply to AI and GO

This is a great idea! Defeating a computer is more a matter of exploiting the program's quirks than playing well, so human go players generally avoid playing against computers. An all-ai go server will provide a place for ai's to find an opponent of any strength the same way human players do, by logging on and asking for a game. Competing with other ai's is bound to be less frustrating -- and more fun -- than pursuing the "human standard."

The Ing Prize was $1.5 million to be awarded to the creators of the first program to defeat a Chinese professional in an even match. Unfortunately, the original offer expired at the end of 1999. Does anyone know if the offer has been extended?
