Artificial intelligence is a relevant topic in the 21st century.

Nowadays, movies have been released putting forward robots with skills equal or even superior (emotionally, physically...) to those of humans; Robots that care about the environment and others capable of destroying the whole earth. These movies were born not from the creativity of scientists but the fruits of increasingly creative directors asking themselves a series of "What if".

Today, I propose you to have a more critical look and to watch some documentaries that relate the facts about a society that is more and more digitalized and for which AI is a daily life companion. These documentaries will allow you to be more open and to understand the world around us and the changes that are taking place.

iHuman

Human examines how Artificial intelligence impacts technology and human lives. It opens with the famous Stephen Hawking quote: "Success in creating Artificial Intelligence would be the biggest event in human history. Unfortunately, it might also be the last."

At this turning point in history, very few people truly understand AI’s full potential or can see clearly what is coming our way. iHuman goes inside the booming AI industry to explore the opportunities and challenges AI presents, investigate the dilemmas experts face as they drive this technology forward, and examine what impact AI is having and will have on the world and our humanity.
