Psmiffy - well, one of the nice things about Go is that newbies can learn by playing against an established player who gives them an n-stone handicap advantage. n can be from 1 to 9 stones already placed on the board, at the marked handicap intersections.
So you could always ask Google if they'd be willing to let you play against their AI with you having a 9-stone advantage. Trust me, you;d learn. You'd get beaten horribly (AI's have no compassion - yet), but by crikey, you'd learn!
