A glimpse into a possible future of human and robotic connectedness made possible through artificial intelligence.

Eschewing the macro for the micro, Hi, A.I. is a dreamy illustration of our new world, in which humans and humanoids now share the domestic space. The documentary follows an American trucker with PTSD — who takes
‘Harmony’ on a road trip through California — and an intrigued Japanese grandmother looking for conversation to examine the roles robots are playing in our complex need for love and companionship. Visits to technological design studios and insights into these robots’ intricate brains highlight what is gained and what is lost in our ever-increasing reliance on artificial intelligence.

Be sure to book your spot to the free panel ‘The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence’ after the Mon 7 October screening.
