Storyline

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

A good human plus a machine is the best combination
5 January 2018 | by MplusA92See all my reviews

This movie is about a board game called "Go", and FYI it's the oldest board game which was invented in China and it's considered more complex than "Chess" although its simple rules and pieces.

However, the movie will not tell you the story behind "Go", but it's about the new forever going conflict between man and machine. And it tried to answer a question of What will happen if AI Go player was an opponent to a human Go player ?

The rhythm of the movie is really good with nice sound effects matching the condition of the scenes, you may feel bored at some points but that will happen very few. You will absolutely download any Go App after watching this movie and you may even love the game of Go.

Finally,it's a good light documentary movie, not too informative that you get bored of and not too cinematic that would get you out of the mood of documentaries.
