The Singularity

SEE EVENT DETAILS
The “singularity” is defined as the point when computer intelligence exceeds human intelligence. While the notion of superhuman machines has long served as fodder for tales of science fiction, most scientific leaders argue that these changes are in fact inevitable, based on the great strides being made in fields such as nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, and molecular biology. These technological advancements no doubt imply a change in what it means to be human. But the question arises: what kind of humans do we want to become? This comprehensive documentary examines technology’s accelerating rate, and deftly addresses the resulting moral questions with leading futurists, computer scientists, artificial intelligence experts, and philosophers. (2012, 76 min, digital)

This is presented as part of our Local Boy Makes Good film series, which focuses on local Bay Area filmmakers.
