Shogi Computer beats human master

A shogi (also called Japanese chess) computer program, created by a team from the University of Tokyo, beat the female shogi master Ichiyo Shimizu. While the shogi algorithm still has to repeat its playing strength, it is impressive, as shogi as more complex than western chess. 

One challenge is still open for computer scientists: Creating an algorithm that can beat a human in a game of Go.
