Movie Info

With more board configurations than there are atoms in the 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. 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?

Critic Reviews for AlphaGo

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

On paper, a 90-minute documentary involving the playing of a 3,000-year-old Chinese board game wouldn't seem to lend itself to adjectives like "lively" and "compelling," but darned if Greg Kohs' "AlphaGo" isn't those things and more.

Rather than playing up the fears of man's imminent obsolescence in the face of artificial intelligence, the filmmakers instead elevate this doc to one that uses Go as a platform to explore and comment on the human condition.

Thought-provoking docu on relationship of AI to humans.

Jan 23, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

To understand go is to understand the universe, the old saying goes. Alphago encourages viewers to look at the universe - and all the intellects within it - with a fresh sense of awe.
