Toward Singularity

From our amazing brain and its inspiring design for artificial neural networks to the hope of artificial general intelligence (AGI), this feature film covers the science of emulating the power of our own brains. Will such technology surpass our own intelligence? Will we reach “The Singularity”? And what will this mean for humanity?

Brain Inspired AI

Toward Singularity takes a look at how neuroscience is inspiring the development of artificial intelligence. Our amazing brain, one of the most complicated systems we know about, is inspiring the development of intelligent machines. Machines that may well surpass our own intelligence and could birth a new species on the planet.

  • How close are we to emulating the brain?
  • How smart is AI today?
  • How far away is Artificial General Intelligence?
  • What are the potential benefits of smarter AI?
  • What are the potential dangers of smarter AI?

Opportunity and danger lie beyond the singularity!
