Tencent’s artificial intelligence (AI) Fine Art (绝艺 in Chinese) stole the limelight after its stunning 11-game winning streak, at the 10th Computer Go UEC Cup, which ended on March 19 in Tokyo, local media is reporting (in Chinese).

Fine Art is an AI system designed by a team of 13 researchers at Tencent’s AI Lab, which was established less than one year ago. Its research focuses on machine learning, natural language processing, speech recognition and computer vision.

The news has caused another stir in the internet industry, following Google AlphaGo’s overwhelming victory last year, which has achieved a feat of 60 wins and 0 losses as of Jan. 5, 2017.
