The Machine That Feels

The Machine That Feels explores the ever-growing and mysterious world of Artificial Intelligence by exploring the latest technological advances in the field. 

Scientists see AI technology as an opportunity to address inequities and make a better, more connected world. But it also has the capacity to do the opposite: to stoke division and inequality and disconnect us from fellow humans. The Machine That Feels shows viewers what they need to know about a field that is advancing at a dizzying pace, often away from the public eye.  What does it mean when AI makes art? How is it possible that AI creates sophisticated neural networks that mimic the human brain? Can AI interpret and understand human emotions and what does it mean to be human in a world filled with machines that feel? The Machine That Feels seeks to answer and investigate these questions, and more.
