  • Artificial intelligence and new technologies are reaching our mental and physical existence like never before in the history of human kind. The film is a journey that leads us to the world of cyborgs, sex robots and androids. It challenges us to face our values, ethics and rethink our position. The main character of the film is Dr. Michael Laakasuo whose work morality and AI has gained recognition both nationally and internationally. We followed the progress of his project called Moralities of Intelligent Machine. The film also introduces other central figures of the current debate such as cyborg Neil Harbisson, developer of AI for sex robots Sergi Santos, Jowan Österlund who encourage people to put microchips for themselves, Prof Hiroshi Ishiguro android robot and Prof Yukiyasu Kamitani who use artificial intelligence to decode thoughts for images. Displaying the visions of the experts and encounters between people and robots, the film captures a glimpse of our near future.

    Director’s Statement: This film project started from a realization that I am no longer sure what is science fiction and what is reality. Artificial intelligence and robotization is developing in staggering speed. The whole mankind is going to experience one of the largest changes right now and it is captivating but also frightening. I started my journey of exploration the zeitgeist of the current era. The film asks what the development of AI means to us as human beings? What are the values we want to hold on to? What we should be aware of?
