CMU's AI agent has built up a substantial lead over the poker pros in Brains vs. AI: Upping the Ante.

With more than half the competition in the rearview mirror, Carnegie Mellon University's AI program Libratus has built up a substantial lead against four top poker professionals in Brains vs. Artificial Intelligence: Upping the Ante.

In our latest video, Computer Science Professor Tuomas Sandholm and two of the poker professionals reflect on the competition to date and what it means for the future of artificial intelligence.

"You really have to pry every chip you can out of Libratus' hands, and you have to do it with skill, not counting on his mistakes," said Jason Les, professional poker player.
