Google DeepMind Beats Go Champion
Some rather interesting commentary by Eliezer Yudkowsky.

Basically, superhuman AI performance in a particular field would not look immediately obvious. Rather than outright domination, there will be a invisible shifting of odds to the AI's favor for a while, until this advantage becomes big enough to be noticeable for the human player. And by this time it is too late for any counter-strategy to be effective as the game is already lost.

Lesser intelligences in OA universe are surely familiar with this phenomena Smile
