Festival of Creative Learning 2018: AI in the Cinema - Dystopia now?

The Festival of Creative Learning is a year-long festival exploring creative learning and innovation at the University of Edinburgh (UoE).

Tuesday, 20 February, 2018 - 09:30 to 23:00

The Festival of Creative Learning is supported by the Institute for Academic Development (IAD). Both staff and students are invited to apply to run events with the Festival.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) increasingly affects us, often without knowing it. Cinema has been using AI to explore ideas of a bleak future since the early movies. Lately some high-profile people have been warning people about the dangers of uncontrolled AI. Are they right?

This event will show some fun movies that have AI at their core, raising questions and making important points, but in an interesting and entertaining manner.

This full-day event will consist of 7 movies (based partly on student nominations), plus 2 very short talks. You can see as many movies as you like!
