ABOUT THE FILM

A new generation of self-learning computers is reshaping every aspect of our lives. Incomprehensible amounts of data are being collected, interpreted and fed back to us in a tsunami of apps, smart devices and targeted advertisements. Virtually every industry on earth is experiencing this transformation, from job automation to medical diagnostics, from elections to battlefield weapons. Will Artificial Intelligence usher in an age of unprecedented potential, or will it be our final invention? From the director of Who Killed The Electric Car? (2006), this lively, scary and spellbinding documentary won the Audience Award at Cinemambiente, the Italian Environmental Film Festival.
