A Google-developed supercomputer bested a South Korean Go grandmaster again Thursday, taking a commanding 2-0 lead in a five-game series that has become a stunning global debut for a new style of "intuitive" artificial intelligence (AI).After shocking the world by defeating Lee Se-Dol -- one of the greatest modern players of the ancient board game -- in their opening match Wednesday, the AlphaGo computer proved it was no fluke with another victory after a grueling four-and-a-half-hour encounter.Hailed as the "match of the century" by local media, the showdown at the Four Seasons Hotel in Seoul is being closely watched by AI experts as well as tens of millions of Go fans mostly in East Asia.Lee appeared to struggle early on after AlphaGo made several moves that were "shockingly unconventional", said Kim Seong-Ryong, a Go commentator and professional player.
