ALPHAGO Arrives On Demand on Google Play, Amazon Instant Video and YouTube Movie
Following critically acclaimed engagements in New York and Los Angeles, Moxie Pictures' AlphaGo is now live on Google Play Movies, Amazon Instant Video and YouTube Movies and will be heading to iTunes soon. AlphaGo, which had its world premiere at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival, chronicles a journey through the backstreets of Bordeaux, past the coding terminals of DeepMind in London, and, ultimately, to the seven-day tournament in Seoul. As the drama unfolds, more questions emerge: What can artificial intelligence reveal about a 3000-year-old game? What can it teach us about humanity?
With more board configurations than there are atoms in the universe, the ancient Chinese game of 'Go' has long been considered a grand challenge for artificial intelligence. On March 9 2016, the worlds of Go and artificial intelligence collided in South Korea for an extraordinary best-of-five-game competition, coined The Google DeepMind Challenge Match. Hundreds of millions of people around the world watched as a legendary Go master took on an unproven AI challenger for the first time in history.
AlphaGo was nominated for "Best Sports Documentary" at the 2017 Critics Choice Documentary Awards and was the recipient of the"Knowledge is Power Science Prize" at the 2017 Traverse City Film Festival and the "Audience Award" at the Warsaw International Film Festival. The film screened as an official selection globally at film festivals including Vancouver, Mill Valley, BFI London, Milwaukee, Bergen, Santa Fe, Heartland, Asheville, 360 Science Tech Moscow, Hot Springs, Bali, St Louis, Kaohsiung, Doctober and Washington West.
AlphaGo is directed by Greg Kohs, produced by Gary Krieg, Josh Rosen and Kevin Proudfoot, executive produced by Robert Fernandez and Dan Levinson and features interviews with Lee Sedol, Demis Hassabis, David Silver, Fan Hui, Frank Lantz and Lord Martin Rees. The film includes an original score by Academy Award nominee, Hauschka.
