We Need to Talk About a.I.
Conflict between man and machine has been a science fiction staple for over a century. From 2001: A Space Odyssey to The Terminator the perceived threat posed by super-intelligent robots has been exploited by Hollywood for decades. But do advances in Artificial Intelligence mean we are now facing a future in which that threat could become a reality? In this feature documentary the world’s top experts clash over whether the existential risk posed by A.I. is superseded by the promise of exponential gain. In an examination of a future we struggle to imagine and the scientific juggernaut that is taking us there; one thing is clear - We Need To Talk About A.I.
