(ECNS) -- China-developed artificial intelligence program Golaxy defeated a computer software named Leela Zero, developed by Belgian programmer Gian-Carlo Pascutto, at the second Digital China Summit in Fuzhou, Fujian Province on Tuesday afternoon. 

Golaxy, a top AI Go program developed by Beijing Thinker Technology Ltd., is capable of playing Go games with optimal moves just like human beings. It has stunned the Go circle with many victories. It beat Ke Jie, one of the world's best Go players, last April, before taking the champion three times straight in the world AI Go competitions. 

During the AI game at the Strait International Conference & Exhibition Center during the summit, the two programs competed against each other by connecting to their systems via computers, with AI expert Dr. Jin Xing, also the founder of Golaxy, and professional Go player Wang Lu making live interpretations of algorithm analysis and winning potentials. 

AI is data-driven in essence, and Go becomes a good test field for algorithmic research because its data is open, accessible, and can be generated indefinitely, Jin said.

AI and robots have been used at this year's Digital China Summit to play Go as a means to help more people understand AI.
