Alex Garland Mines Artificial Intelligence For His Sci-Fi Directorial Debut EX-MACHINA
On that front though, it looks like Garland probably has some time. The latest major news in artificial intelligence came with Obama's annoucement that he's planning a decade-long scientific study to build a comprehensive map of the activities of the human brain. Of course this is being touted as an effort to combat Alzheimer's and similar diseases, but according to the New York Times, this project also "holds the potential of paving the way for advances in artificial intelligence." So there you have it. Garland and anyone else with a script about artificial intelligence have at least another ten years or so before reality and actual science beat them to the punch.
