SEOUL, March 13 (Yonhap) -- It feels like victory for all humans.

South Korean Go player Lee Se-dol finally collected his first win against Google's artificial intelligence (AI) program AlphaGo on Sunday, rebounding from his three consecutive defeats earlier.

In their fourth showdown at the Four Seasons Hotel in Seoul, Lee got the win by resignation over AlphaGo, the AI designed by Google's London-based firm DeepMind, in 180 moves after playing nearly 4 hours and 44 minutes. The score at the special five-round Go tournament named the Google DeepMind Challenge Match is now 3-1.
