Screening of documentary AlphaGo
- Thursday 15 February 2018
- Pathé Tuschinski
On February 15, ZYLAB organizes a screening of the award-winning documentary AlphaGo, in collaboration with the Leiden Centre of Data Science. The documentary chronicles the greatest triumph of Artificial Intelligence: Google DeepMind's defeat of the champion Go player Lee Sedol.
In 2016, AlphaGo surprised everyone by defeating the world champion in the extremely intricate board game Go. When compared with chess computers such as Deep Blue or Watson, AlphaGo's underlying algorithms are evidence that the scientific community is making progress towards artificial general intelligence.
