• Game Over: Kasparov and the Machine
Plot: In 1997, amidst much media fanfare about the showdown between artificial and human intelligence, chess grandmaster Gary Kasparov lost a set of matches against IBM's "thinking" computer Deep Blue. The documentary film GAME OVER: KASPAROV AND THE MACHINE revisits that series of chess games from Kasparov's perspective, and explores his idea that there may have been an underhanded scheme at work. Taking the chess master's accusations as a starting point, the film investigates the possibility that IBM might have cheated for financial gain, while also positioning the invention of Deep Blue in the history of game playing machines. Part conspiracy theory and part documentation of a media event, GAME OVER considers the fear and wonderment regarding artificial intelligences.
