What kind of Binomial is this?

Algebra Level 4

\[ 1 + \frac {2}{3} \left ( \frac 1 2 \right )^1 + \frac {2 \times 5}{3 \times 6} \left ( \frac 1 2 \right )^2 + \frac {2 \times 5 \times 8}{3 \times 6 \times 9} \left ( \frac 1 2 \right )^3 + \cdots \]

If the series above can be stated in the form \( a^{1/b} \) for coprime positive integers \(a\) and \(b\), what is the value of \(a+b?\)
