Storyline

This documentary compares and contrasts current advances in computer artificial intelligence with its portrayal in the classic science-fiction movie "2001: A Space Odyssey". Scenes from the movie and readings by "2001" author Arthur C. Clarke are interwoven with interviews of computer scientists discussing their current research in computer chess playing, vision (face recognition and scene analysis), speech (synthesis, recognition, lip-reading(!)), common sense (knowledge of the world), intelligence, human-computer interactions, and emotions.
