Because “nothing will affect the future of humanity more than digital super-intelligence,” Elon Musk thinks you should watch Chris Paine’s artificial-intelligence movie “Do You Trust This Computer?” And, wouldn’t you know it, the film is streaming for free until later tonight.
Here’s the synopsis: “Science fiction has long anticipated the rise of machine intelligence. Today, a new generation of self-learning computers has begun to reshape every aspect of our lives. Incomprehensible amounts of data are being created, interpreted, and fed back to us in a tsunami of apps, personal assistants, smart devices, and targeted advertisements. Virtually every industry on earth is experiencing this transformation, from job automation, to medical diagnostics, even military operations. ‘Do You Trust This Computer?’ explores the promises and perils of our new era. Will A.I. usher in an age of unprecedented potential, or prove to be our final invention?”
