Do You Trust this Computer?

by Chris Paine USA 2018 78'

Staggering amounts of data are being collected, interpreted, and fed back to us in a tsunami of apps, smart devices, and targeted advertisements. Virtually every industry on Earth is feeling this transformation, from job automation to medical diagnostics, from elections to battlefield weapons. Paine explores how AI, as science fiction has long well anticipated, is starting to redefine that trust and our relationship with computers. How fast is this tech accelerating and what does it promise us? Are there truly 'existential threats'? And perhaps the biggest question, can we control what we've created? We ask if AI will usher in an age of unprecedented potential, or prove to be our final invention.
