Director’s Statement

It is indisputable that discussions about Artificial Intelligence are only going to increase as technologies advance in much more ambitious scales than even sci-fi writers from the past dreamed about. They are also going to open up philosophical questions to ponder: how much power should we give machines ? Are there any areas where automation should be excluded from ? Will the benefits of using such gizmos outweigh the can of worms that it will inevitably open ?
