Google's artificial intelligence software has won its third straight match against a grandmaster of an ancient board game called Go.
Google's program, AlphaGo, won the first three games in a series of five against Lee Sedol, who's considered one of the world's best Go players.
This means Google has secured the $1 million in prize money from the competition, which it says it will donate to charity. But this was about more than money and bragging rights for Google.
