Many people have tried to make a go program that could beat even an intermediate player. So far none have been successful. For a time there was a reward of a million dollars to whoever can do it. I dont really expect to either, but my motivation is in making a testbed to try different approaches. I (not this program) am ranked about 5 kyu on KGS. The object of the game is to get as much territory as possible. This applet uses an SGF library (by Dave Jarvis) to store games on disk.
