PokerStars Pro Liv Boeree appears in a new video released last week about artificial intelligence and poker.
The video is sponsored by Hewlett-Packard (HP) and has so far gotten over 219,000 views. While Boeree is well featured, there are also group of other people who appear in the video, like Carnegie Mellon professor Dr. Tuomas Sandholm:
Earlier this year, Libratus, an artificial intelligence, made headlines by besting poker champions from around the world in Texas Hold ‘Em. Astrophysicist and professional poker player Liv Boeree looks beyond the game to imagine how a supercomputer-driven AI can solve some of humanity’s biggest problems. Invented by Carnegie Mellon professor Dr. Tuomas Sandholm and powered by HPE technology, Libratus is capable of much more than mastering a mathematically-complex card game. It has the potential to answer some of our most enduring and complex questions about the nature of the universe.
Boeree made her breakthrough in poker in 2010 when she won the EPT San Remo Main Event for €1,250,000. Boeree also won a WSOP bracelet this year after she and her boyfriend Igor Kurganov took down the $10,000 No Limit Hold’em – Tag Team Championship for $136,982 paydays each.
