Go program that would allow start playing Go without even reading rules.
Animations would 'explain' liberties and solidly connected units of
stones by flashing them for a short time after move. Especially combined
with touch screen should allow even 2-3 year old children to play Go
against computer. Player only need to be able to touch at screen at
point (s)he wants to place stone. Phone would then reply and wait for
another touch (move). I suspect that eventually player would figure out
what is happening without any explanation. Computer opponent would start
close to random strength and increase strength gradually as player
increases in strength.
