This groundbreaking documentary takes an in-depth look at the revolutionary developments currently taking place in artificial intelligence (AI) research. With advances in algorithms, AI is changing the way we live, offering opportunities as well as posing significant dangers. As AI gains a central role in our society, how will it shape our future and what are the implications for our personal freedoms and democracy?
Journeying to hotspots of AI research in Europe, the USA, and China, the documentary captures the scale and speed of AI’s rapid growth. From sound and video recordings that blur the line between fact and fiction to algorithms that can determine the granting of loans and insurance risks, and even decide how good employees are, AI’s progress challenges human comprehension. Furthering this challenge is the potential for AI to create a world of work that’s more efficient but leaves many professions obsolete, and the risk of its widespread surveillance. Through interviews with experts in the field and fascinating real-world examples, this compelling documentary unravels the complexities of AI’s social and ethical implications, shedding light on a frontier that blurs science fiction with science fact.
