Saw this documentary at Kosmorama firm festival in 2020. Its a smack in the face to the many who refuse to look into what the future has to bring. The documentary brings out the various directions where AI might take us in the future to come. It tells where the latest great breakthroughs of the 2010s came from, how its become the source of many technology empires and speaks of how private and governmental groups is entering a political, economical and military arms race for the future. How certain big companies strive control the big military and governmental contracts and toss their morals aside. It tells of the amazing future it might bring, the terror of autonomous weapons, how AI can bring further polarization of our societies.. to the bleakest darkest most terrifying dystopian futures and possible end of humanity. For those who study the subject there is little new, the interviews with the pioneers in AI development, a view into their mindsets was worth it by itself. For the novice, its an great a great introduction to what is going on in the higher tiers of Technology industries as it does not need any technical understanding to get the message. The future is at the doorstep, we need to be prepared for what is to come.
The documentary follows the booming artificial intelligence industry, what opportunities and challenges it brings and its impact on the global community.
