The statements came ahead of the final match in Seoul where the Korean master Lee Sedol is trying to compete with the artificial intelligence. Jie claims many Go players underestimated the Alpha-Go strength. Instead the secret of the victory lies in deeper understanding.

"In terms of probability, I have a chance to win, but the probability is not as high as I thought before. I think it is 60 percent in favor of me," Chinese Go Master, Ke Jie says.

Alpha-Go software was created by Google's artificial intelligence service. It defeated Korean Lee Sedol in the first three matches.
