I'm wondering if this will follow DeepMind's formula
1. Beat European Champion
2. Beat World Champion
3. AlphaStar Master beat 60 consecutive online games with top pro
4. AlphaStar Zero (Learning from scratch/Tabula rasa) paper release
5. Alpha e-Zero (one AI that can play at least 3 e-sports games)

Live streaming/streamed now -- would be nice to have commentary for 25kyu StarCraft audiences. :)

It's very amazing what DeepMind has done, I won't comment on the game as it's worth watching it by yourself
Now for the result.....

It unfold almost exactly as happen with AlphaGo
First AlphaStar trained 1 week (3 days of studying human games and 4 days of self-play) and won (pre-broadcast) 5-0 against one of the near top pro, but the human play the race that is not his specialty so his level is kinda like (Fan Hui?)
Then AlphaStar trained for another week and won (pre-broadcast) 5-0 against top ten pro with the human get to play his specialty race, but in a live game match human exploit the AI weakness and it lose in such a AI style of loss. It should be note that in 10 pre-broadcast games AI can see all of the maps that it's legally allowed to see by the rule of the game, but in a live game it can only see locally just like human and have to move camera around to see and take action at another part of the map.
Knowing DeepMind's formula, they will turn this single loss in their (almost) perfect record into a crazy version like AlphaGo Master for sure.

DeepMind has update the blog on this, see ... rcraft-ii/

Updated: just as I predicted, Demis Hassabis tweet that AlphaStar will play more game in the future. {IMHO expect the 'AlphaGo Master' level soon}

From Reddit AMA look like Fan Hui is still working at DeepMind?
"We have met with Fan Hui. It was a fun experience to see how we had a similar approach, confidence, going into the matches. We talked briefly after the event and we both felt excited about where this journey is going to take us. Even though we are from two different worlds - Starcraft and GO, our competitive side felt very similar. It was a pleasure to talk to him and to the Deepmind team responsible for playing AlphaStar."
