Go is an old Chinees strategy board game blending science, art and sport. On one hand Go has very simple rules, so anyone can play it, regardless of age or profession. On the other hand the number of positions is so high, that only just in 2016 it was possible to create artificial intelligence - AlphaGo - that matched the best human players in the world.

AlphaGo chronicles a journey from the backstreets of Bordeaux, past the coding terminals of Google DeepMind, to Seoul, where a legendary Go master faces an unproven AI challenger. As the drama unfolds, questions emerge: What can artificial intelligence reveal about a 3000-year-old game? What will it teach us about humanity?
