Below the summary of games between computers and humans
in SSCI 2011; SGFs are here: http://ssci2011.nutn.edu.tw/
and Go from random initial board report is http://www.lri.fr/~teytaud/

Pachi and MoGoTW are running on clusters of SMPs; MoGoTW and been supported by the Grid5000 project (www.grid5000.fr). It is based on a work in the Tao team (lri, inria),

5) Random initial positions against B. Helmstetter (french 5D, former french championship and former 4th in world amateur championship (usually winning with H6 against MoGo).
no tedious fuseki-learning. Try with children, it's
always a success :-)
No more than 160 stones: B Helmstetter wins everything (somehow easily).
240 stones: computer wins first game as black. Replay changing colors:
humans wins as black
180 stones: human chooses to be white. Computer wins as black.
Replay changing colors: computers wins as white.
180 stones, new position: human chooses his side and wins.
(i.e. 1/2 for computer with 240 stones and 2/3 for computer with 180 stones
==> humans can compete against top level amateurs from random boards
with sufficiently many boards; see e.g. http://www.lri.fr/~teytaud/
