More Human Than Human is a film about the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its effects on our lives. AI was once just science fiction and futurist visions, but it is already with us. Self-driving cars, autonomous drones seeking their next target or government agencies mining our personal data, we are surrounded by smart machines already. Increasingly, we expect machines to know what we want and understand us when we talk – just ask Siri.
The complexity of tasks that smart machines can perform is increasing at an exponential rate. Where will this ultimately take us? If a robot can learn to fold a towel on its own, will it someday be able to cook you dinner, perform surgery, and even conduct a war? This film instigates this debate between futurists and sceptics, about the potential of Artificial Intelligence.
