If we were to tell you that a robot could beat you in chess, would you believe it? You should.

But, poker is different. It's a game of imperfect information that requires the ability to reason. While this might seem like a human-only trait, a team of scientists at Carnegie Mellon University is proving that AI is capable of learning reasoning skills...and whooping you at a game of no-limit Texas Hold 'Em.
