AUTONOMOUS ARTIFACTS

Documentary 2019

Within technological development, AI and humanoid machines become increasingly prevalent. Their characteristics seem to be depicting the human body: they can learn, comprehend and think; they are independent, interactive and social; faster, more efficient, and better. Simultaneously, they challenge the human body, its physique and intellect, its adaptability and intimacy. Taking this as the starting point, the movie asks philosphers, computer scientists and tech enthusiasts to reflect upon the relation between man and machine along an array of insights into our technological era.
