Your brain on AlphaGo.

The recent Go match between the AI AlphaGo and Lee Sodol was fascinating. Several observers noted that they were impressed by the AI's play and certainly learned something. 

Here's what I picked up:

When making moves from a broad perspective, your actions may not make complete sense to an observer. In fact, you may experiment more than people realize as you search for the best possible choices.

A broad view gives you options and space to work. It also allows your strategy to develop over time. A fixed strategy doesn't leave much room for improvisation or experimentation.
