A beautifully made production, but it left me wanting more
29 June 2020 | by craig-tamlinSee all my reviews

Having seen the Australian premiere of this documentary last night, I was in great anticipation of witnessing breakthroughs that would make me concerned; or at least a little more educated. I did learn quite an amount about how AI could change our future, but was confused by a dichotomy of ideas presented by the different scientists being interviewed. I felt like that this document didn't significantly progress the dialog, more recounting many facts already in the public domain.

On the other hand, as I have noted above, my view is that the production is first class. The graphics and technical explanations to someone who may have had no exposure to AI or neural networks will come away quite informed on the topic.

The notion that the next 20-30 years will be groundbreaking (even alarming) through the mass rollout of AI in technology wasn't made strongly enough in my opinion.
