Hiya. Reporter here. On the press briefing call Hassabis said that the single node version won 494 out of 495 games against an array of closed- and open-source Go programs. The distributed version was used in the match against the human and will be used in March. Distributed alphago used in the October match was about 170GPUs and 1200CPUs, he said.

How much did that cost? If you price on AWS or GCC the equivalent and multiply by the length of the match was it like $20k?
