With more board configurations than there are atoms in the observable universe, the ancient Chinese game of 'Go' has long been considered a grand challenge for artificial intelligence. On March 9, 2016, the worlds of Go and artificial intelligence collided in South Korea for an extraordinary best-of-five-game competition, coined the Google DeepMind Challenge Match. Hundreds of millions of people around the world watched as a legendary Go master took on an unproven AI challenger for the first time in history. Directed by Greg Kohs with an original score by Academy Award nominee, Hauschka, AlphaGo chronicles a journey from the halls of Cambridge, through the backstreets of Bordeaux, past the coding terminals of DeepMind in London, and, ultimately, to the seven-day tournament in Seoul. As the drama unfolds, more questions emerge: What can artificial intelligence reveal about a 3000-year-old game? What can it teach us about humanity? Written by AlphaGo

What does it mean to be human?
1 January 2018 | by ola-172-728948See all my reviews

This is an awesome movie about the creation of AlphaGo, the first program that managed to stand up to the best human players of the ancient game of Go. This came out of nowhere, a decade or two before it was expected, and took everyone with surprise. Watch how the players struggle with meeting opposition of a level they had never thought to meet, and the questions it gives rise to. The movie centers around matches that were widely reported in media the world over, so the outlines of the story may be known, but this is nevertheless a very exciting and gripping movie as we watch the story unfold from behind the scenes.
