AlphaGo is a 2017 documentary film directed by Greg Kohs which focuses on the go-playing artificial intelligence, AlphaGo, and its unprecedented victory against the top world champion of the time, Lee Sedol.

Review

Good

  • The film is both exciting and interesting.
  • Seeing Lee Sedol's face of disbelief as he loses to the AI he is confident he would is quite emotional. You feel bad for him, and see his 4th game victory as a triumph even though it's unimportant.
  • I love how the documentary fixated on the unusual moves that AlphaGo made, and how they ended up being very impressive further down the line. I just wish they would have gone into more depth as to why they were so unusual.

Bad

  • I wish they would have spent a little more time explaining why it's so much harder to become good at go even though it's comparatively simple to games like chess.
  • I really wish they would have gone into more depth describing the neural network of AlphaGo. They only gloss over its three main systems.

Ugly

  • Nothing.
