Artificial intelligence software company SenseTime has unveiled the newest addition to its SenseRobot family – the SenseRobot Go. Designed for young Go learners, the product will combine SenseTime’s AI and robotic arm technology, allowing users to play Go on an actual board.

The SenseRobot Go provides users with a comprehensive gaming experience that includes a diverse collection of AI Go exercises, human-to-machine and online human-to-human gameplay. It also has various visual, auditory and tactile interactions to enhance the overall experience.

In addition, it can also serve as an intelligent companion for children, fostering the development of critical thinking skills. And by making Go AI accessible to a wide range of households, users will get the opportunity for more individuals to engage with the game.

At the product launch event, Dr. Xu Li, executive chairman of the board and CEO of SenseTime said, “SenseRobot innovates with computing power, hand-eye coordination and engineering feats, bringing AI from data centres to homes. We hope to redefine the future of home robotics with SenseRobot, not only bringing new life experiences to households, but also injecting new vitality into the game of Go and promoting the diverse development of traditional culture.”

Bringing Go intelligence to households

Olympic gold medalist Guo Jingjing has expressed her endorsement of the SenseRobot Go, while Mr. Nie Weiping, a vice chairman of the Chinese Weiqi Association (CWA) and a respected Go master, has praised its remarkable performance and capabilities.

“Go is a profound intellectual sport with a long history and unique cultural significance. The development of modern technology has brought unprecedented challenges and opportunities to Go,” said Mr. Weiping.

The SenseRobot Go comes equipped with an advanced AI engine and has boards in various sizes to cater to different levels of learners. For beginners, there are options for 9×9 and 13×13 boards, while the 19×19 board offers human-machine gameplay with 20 difficulty levels.

Lin Jianchao, chairman of China Weiqi Association said, “The world of Go has entered a new era characterised by the internet, big data and AI. The SenseRobot Go marks a significant milestone in bringing Go intelligence into households.”
