Home / Computers/technology / News / Video: Poker-playing Ai Machine Could Change The World


Liv Boeree is one of the most prominent figures in poker, known as a PokerStars Pro and an EPT and WSOP champion with more than $2 million in lifetime tournament winnings … and counting. 

Boeree is also a model and guitarist and has a degree in astrophysics from the University of Manchester. Seriously, she can do it all.

The Great Big Story released a video earlier this week featuring Boree to talk about how a supercomputer-driven AI system can solve some of humanity's biggest problems. Earlier this year, Libratus; an artificial intelligence, made headlines by beating poker champions from around the world in Texas Hold'Em. 

Invented by Carnegie Mellon professor Dr Tuomas Sandholm and powered by HPE technology, Libratus is capable of much more than mastering a mathematically-complex card game. It has the potential to answer some of our most enduring and complex questions about the nature of the universe.
