More Human Than Human explores the promises and the complex role of Artificial Intelligence in today's world and the consequences of those promises becoming reality. In this feature length documentary the filmmaker attempts to build an intelligent robot to see if it can replace him as the film director. Will our creation, infinitely smarter, interconnected and possibly self-aware, render humanity obsolete?
Frankly I recommend that people stick to reading Bostrom, the actual leading expert in the field. He is given relatively short time here and lots of inexpert opinion is given undue weight.
also given undue weight is the effect on human behavior, which is a tertiary issue at best.
No offense to Richard Linklater, but he comes off as foolish in downplaying the capabilities he actually exemplifies the status quo bias and sounds like someone looking at a non-networked commodore 64 and wondering how "adding machine" will ever be powerful.
The fact is there are a number of high order risk, indeed existential risk problems facing the human race as noted by experts such as Bostrom and Stephen Hawkings. And climate change, gun control, and most other issues are not on that list. The list is: Hostile Artificial Intelligence, singularity (especially malign global governance) , destructive biotechnology or nanotechnology, human genetic engineering, nuclear holocaust, and bioterrorism using genetically modified organisms.
