- A voyage to the frontiers of AI development
Spring, 2016. Google's artificial intelligence (AI) beat a South Korean world champion in the strategic board game of "Go," considered to be one of the most complex games invented by man. Evolving AI features a rare extended interview with the developer of Google's DeepMind AlphaGo program, Demis Hassabis, who surprisingly reveals he included in the AI human-like "intuition" and "creativity."
The program also reports on the frontlines of AI development, including a US venture company that invented AI which accurately seeks out cancer from images, and a Japanese company trying to infuse AI with human emotions.
What does the future hold for AI? Is it a blessing or a curse for mankind? The program searches for answers.
