Think Kasparov vs. Deep Blue on steroids and you've got the story behind the engrossing documentary AlphaGo. The game: Go, an ancient board game played the world over, with nearly infinite complexity. The players: Lee Sedol, a South Korean Go player widely considered the world's best, facing the titular AlphaGo, an artificial intelligence developed by Google's DeepMind whose modus operandi is to play the game beyond human capacity. What follows is a gripping battle of man vs. machine, a cerebral competition unlike any in human history!
