AlphaGo relied on c++ for efficiency

When Stroustrup mentioned AlphaGo, I immediately said that was really cool.

He said when he looked under the hood he realized it was built on c++ components.

I think AlphaGo has to analyze a large number of possibilities so efficiency (not latency) is important and had to use c++.

Stroustrup also singled out TensorFlow library.
