Everything I Know about Artificial Intelligence I Learned from the Movies
Abstract: Much of what most people “know” about artificial intelligence traces its source to science fiction mythology. Science fiction representations of robots, created minds, and intelligent machines spans a wide range of perspectives. Speculative books may describe possible futures of AI, but movies and TV series can show what a world would be like if these scenarios became reality. Star Wars and Star Trek, show nearly polar opposites in how AI turns out in a highly advanced human (and non-human) civilization.
