    • Synopsis
    • The ancient Chinese board game Go has long been considered the holy grail for artificial intelligence. Mastery of the game by computers was considered to be impossible. Yet in 2016, Google's DeepMind team announced that their AI programme for playing Go – AlphaGo – would be taking on Lee Sedol: the world's most elite Go champion. The documentary chronicles the DeepMind team as it prepares to test the limits of its rapidly evolving artificial intelligence technology and reveals as much about the workings of the human mind as it does the future of AI. A fascinating sports documentary.
