Playing Go with computer vision

by Carson Reynolds

Chris Wren uploaded a video for a system we worked on together at MERL a few summers ago. The system allows a user to play go over the internet or against a computer using a real go board. There is also an interface for learning Joseki and Fuseki.

We wrote a few short papers on the system as an example of the more general concept of using real physical objects to interact with computer systems.
