Science fiction has long anticipated the rise of machine intelligence. Today, a new generation of self-learning computers is reshaping every aspect of our lives.

Virtually every industry on earth is feeling this transformation, from job automation to medical diagnostics, from elections to battlefield weapons. Do You Trust This Computer? explores the promises and perils of this developing era. Will A.I. usher in an age of unprecedented potential, or prove to be our final invention?

I'm afraid for the future of the human race now
6 April 2018 | by niedzielskimSee all my reviews

I won't be writing a very long and informative review - the quality of this documentary is mostly attested by the people appearing in it, I found it through Elon Musk's Twitter... But it is eye-opening to the extent that it makes you realize how much technology has changed our lives over the last several decades and how much more it will change still in the coming decades. I don't want to be a fearmonger, but I was genuinely afraid and understood why the amish do what they do for a moment.
