Short Story

Toward Singularity (working title) will be a feature length film about the latest neuroscience and how this science is inspiring the development of artificial intelligence. We look at our amazing brain, one of the most complicated systems we know about, and how its architecture is paving a way for more intelligence machines. On our journey toward super-intelligent machines we discuss the interface between humans and machines and the many ethical issues this technology brings up.

We hope to be in production during the second half of 2019 and be publishing the documentary to major streaming channels by early 2020.
