Korean Go player Beats Google's AlphaGo

After suffering three defeats in a row, South Korean Lee Sedol won his first match against AlphaGo. Anyone else think the computer just felt sorry for him and let him win a match?

South Korean Lee Sedol won his first match against a computer program developed by a Google subsidiary on Sunday in the ancient board game Go, denying a clean sweep for the artificial intelligence in a five-match series. Lee, one of the world's top players and a holder of 18 international titles, recovered from three consecutive losses against the AlphaGo program developed by DeepMind.
