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 too human film
18 February 2018 | by realintheorySee all my reviews

Given the subject matter, I thought it ironic that the film went almost entirely for a human centric view. There was little or no explanation of why the Alpha Go program is so ground breaking. It was interesting to see it's effects on the players and creators.. but.. without the context of 'why ?', the film missed a huge point.
