Good in the machine


  Last updated November 22, 2019 at 1:14 pm


Good in the Machine asks how can we make “good” AI, what does it mean for a machine to be ethical, and who or what is the agent of the machine?

Third in a quartet of short documentary films, in partnership with Cambridge University and international AI experts, Good in the Machine boldly questions the origins of our own morality and the interplay between artificial agency and our own moral compass.

SCINEMA 2019 Festival Entry.
