What To Watch: AlphaGo

This documentary mostly follows AlphaGo (Google’s Go playing AI) competing against Lee Sedol (one of the top ranked Go player in the world).

I don’t know much about Go but I found the documentary to be extremely interesting. I strongly believe that computers should be used to make humanity smarter and not to be a crutch to make us dumber. It’s amazing to watch AlphaGo be a catalyst for one of the world’s best Go players who has to rethink his understanding of Go in order to attempt beating this AI.

If you have a spare hour and a half, I’d consider watching it.
