Google DeepMind’s researchers built the artificially intelligent AlphaGo algorithm. It was programmed to learn how to play the ancient Go board game by analysing previous games and playing against older versions of itself. The game is known to be more computationally complex than chess. With defeating master Go player Lee Sedol, the documentary AlphaGo chronicles one of the great triumphs of artificial intelligence so far.
