Google's DeepMind AI is already the first computerized system to best a champion Go player, and you can watch its next big game in less than 24 hours. The AlphaGo program will take on Lee Se-dol in the first match (of a planned five game series) at the Four Seasons hotel in Seoul, Korea tomorrow, at 1PM local time (10:30PM ET). The match will be broadcast live on YouTube, and you can find the stream right here.

If you prefer a 24/7-style run up to the bout, there's video online describing the development of AlphaGo and also of its victory over 3-time European champ Fan Hui. Lee is one of the top ranked players in the world, and has said he expects to win 5 - 0, or perhaps 4 - 1. At stake is a $1 million prize, which AlphaGo will donate to charity if it wins. The game is expected to take 4 - 5 hours, so you should still be able to tune in even if you're not on at exactly 10:30.
