A series of short documentaries on the future and implications of AI and robotics made by Dr Beth Singler, produced and directed by DragonLight Films, and with funding from the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion, the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence, the Economic and Social Research Council, and ARM, are available through the Cambridge University’s Youtube Channel.
Ghost in the Machine asks the big questions: What is consciousness? Could Artificial Intelligence ever be conscious? Could we even ever prove that it was? And if we could, what would that mean to our society and our future? This is the last in a quartet of short documentary films made with Cambridge University and international experts discussing topical issues within the field of artificial intelligence.
