The name DeepMind is ironic in that AI programs like this are the exact opposite. They calculate every possibility and simply select the one with the highest chance of winning.

Sorry, @thor220, you're wrong. The possibilities of go are far too large for a brute-force approach. The whole point of DeepMind is that it DOES NOT rely solely on deep-ply search. Educate yourself, please.

Watching this live was a roller coaster of emotions. On the one hand I wanted the human to win but on the other, this is a monumental breakthrough in Computer learning and AI development. It looked really good for Lee Sedol until 2/3 of the way through the game when he made 1 critical missplay and it all went down hill from there. I really hope the AI doesn't 5-0 him now due to emotional stress or something.

Watching the whole game and listening to the commentary one of the things that stood out is that AlphaGO doesn't get tired where as Lee Sedol has to concentrate for >3 hours solid.

Is their D-Wave part of this?
Not unless it's present as extremely expensive decor, which is about all it's good for currently.
Just curious, because this article (Dec 2015):
http://www.popularmechanics.com/technology/gadgets/a18475/google-nasa-d-wave-quantum-computer/

seems to indicate that they made a breakthrough

I am certainly no epert (not even a novice), but this article seems to describe the problem presented:
