A hard-hitting, wide-ranging and eye-opening documentary, MACHINE unpacks the most radical new technology of our time.
Infiltrating everything from transport to military to healthcare, artificial intelligence is no longer merely the realm of science fiction. In a world where machines are fast becoming smarter than people, what does our increasing reliance upon technology mean for our future? And who, if anyone, is controlling the rise of this new technology? With expert insights from engineers, inventors, entrepreneurs, neurosurgeons, philosophers, ethicists and more including Australian data scientist and digital ‘rock star’ Toby Walsh, pioneering fighter pilot turned autonomous vehicle systems professor Missy Cummings, and roboticist Hiroshi Ishiguro, who famously made a lifelike android that resembles him to an uncanny extent Machine examines our fast-changing, AI-infused reality, as well as its immense impact upon everything from identity and creativity to longevity and sexuality.
MACHINE is a thought-provoking and awe-inspiring new film that examines not only the practical applications of AI but also the ethical questions raised by these new developments. (English, German, Japanese with English subtitles)
