Ex Machina

Saw Alex Garland’s Ex Machina.

A fascinating study of ego, intelligence, AI and slavery. You get to ask yourself who is most manipulative and who is the abuser? Along the way there’s a few nice digs at tech billionaires who become reclusive if you get the references.

Good timely film.. We should be aware of ourĀ demonsĀ and manage our creations.

  • A very timely post as I have just been reading a lot about AI and what it could mean for the evolution of our species – check out Ray Kurzwell , and also this great Google Talk by Nick Bostrom.

    And for some mind-blowing stuff, check out Part 1 and Part 2 (but Part 2 is the most relevant) of this Wait by Why post on the AI Revolution: Our immortality or our Extinction. I particularly how he talks about how AI is always anthropomorphised so that we can relate to it. When in reality a computer will (would?) always remain a computer. You must read this post, it’s mind-blowing and eye-opening.
