Libratus, the artificial intelligence software that beat four professional poker players in a game of Hold’em in early 2017, has won an industry award for its achievements.

Trade publication HPCwire recently announced that the Carnegie Mellon bot, or more specifically the team behind it, were the proud recipients of the Reader's Choice Award for Best Use of AI.

The team in question was led by Computer Science Professor Tuomas Sandholm and student Noam Brown who developed the software at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, a jointly funded research facility affiliated to both Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh.

The award was announced at the 30th annual International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis which is ongoing in Denver, Colorado this week.

Back in January at the Rivers Casino, Libratus was victorious over the course of 120,000 hands of No-Limit Texas Hold'em in 20-days, after which the bot was up by $1.76 million in chips.

Will artificial intelligence impact the game in a positive way? Let us know in the comments:
