ALPHAGO takes us through a journey from the backstreets of Bordeaux, where European Go champion Fan Hui leads us past the coding terminals of Google DeepMind. In a research test, Hui gives his all against the artificial intelligence programme called AlphaGo but ends up losing. Having defeated Hui, the team behind AlphaGo prepares to take on legendary Korean Go master Lee Sedol in a match which pits man against AI. Has this ancient Chinese game really inspired the creation of a machine with the ability to think like a human?
