Both the positive and negative sides of AI is portrayed in movies
Fairy tales are mostly fictions decorated with fantasy. But sci-fic movies are often taken into serious account. The reason behind this is that machines and robotics-related movies from the past are slowly turning to be a reality now. Henceforth, people are curious about what technologies movies might unravel to the mindsets of scientists.
Familiar topics like advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems, humanoid robots, self-driving cars, and a whole world full of digital growth is what the movie sector has portrayed so far. If we take a close look at these delusions, all are not imaginations. Somehow, slowly we are turning our face towards all these assumed characteristics. Maybe, it could now look like a total dream, but we are at the beginning of the dream, which could soon become a part of everyday life.
Take IoT as an example; doesn’t that unleash more common technologies to the digital era? The scariest part of these sci-fi movies is the humanoid robots taking over humans and controlling them. These are far from reach for now. But some general issues spoken in the movies like ethical problems and moral dimensions are nearly true.
Here we are taking you on a roller-coaster ride on some must-watch sci-fic movies that speak about moral and ethical aspects of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and the power of data science.
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
The decades-old classic movie was directed by Stanley Kubrick. The movie speaks about AI in the future designed by proud scientists with a highly advanced 9000 series of computers. The AI functions on a memory bank. The movie swirls around a space mission where a crew of humans takes a robot designed with HAL functions to Jupiter. Initially, HAL seems to be friendly and copes with human ideas. However, the secret code that it took was to stop humans from going to Jupiter and kill them in the craft. The protagonist finally dismantles the Robot when it said, “I’m sorry, Dave.” This brought a scare to the watchers on what could happen if the movie turns to be true someday.
The Terminator (1984)
The movie is a perfect mix of action, sci-fi technology, and personification of machine learning. Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as a cyborg assassin, the movie talks about a humanistic cyborg created by Cyberdyne Systems. The Cyborg is known as T-800 model 101. The mission of the Cyborg is to kill Sarah Connor before she gives birth to John Connor, who would become the savior of humanity. The plot revolves around AI trying to control humans, thinking that they will be a great threat. […]
