Brains vs. AI: Computer faces poker pros in no-limit Texas Hold'em

 

PITTSBURGH, April 25 (UPI) -- Four of the world's best poker players face a common opponent, a computer program named Claudico, in a two-week "Brains Vs. Artificial Intelligence" competition at Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh.

In a competition that started Friday, Claudico will play 20,000 hands of heads-up no-limit Texas Hold'em with each human competitor over the course of 14 days. That's 1,500 hands per day until May 8, with one day off so the living individuals can rest.

Claudico, developed at Carnegie Mellon University under the direction of computer science professor Tuomas Sandholm, is the first computer program to play the game against top human players.

The competition seeks to further challenge and test the program and its algorithms, which may have "future applications in business, military, cybersecurity and medical arenas," Sandholm said in a press release.
