@Deozaan: Adam series - thanks. Annoyingly too brief. Rather good.

Kung Faux

I do not know where to watch them.  Amazon Prime has them listed but marked unavailable in my area.  If you have not seen them it is worth the time.  Especially if you like Shaw Brothers classic kung fu flicks.

Documentary ‘Do You Trust This Computer?’ free to stream courtesy of Elon Musk

Streaming here: http://doyoutrustthiscomputer.org/watch

Apparently available free for just this weekend.
I'm watching/(listening to) it at the moment. The narration/voiceover is sufficient by itself - quite good - and the dramatised video is arguably somewhat superfluous, with music to "tell us" how to think - like a lot of American documentaries that I have come across. It's a bit "once over lightly". It could make a decent radio/.mp3 documentary - shorter too - but everything seems to have to be video nowadays...    :o

EDIT: Having tired of watching the video, I was sufficiently interested to continue listening to it as I browsed the feeds in my excellent BazQux feed aggregator. The video is about 1hr 18mins long. Some of the music is quite good and my ears picked up what sounded distinctly like some musical styles/riffs borrowed from others - e.g., Beatles orchestrated rhythms/music and Jean Michel Jarré's Oxygene.

As a documentary, I'd give it 3 stars out of a 5-star rating.    :Thmbsup:  :Thmbsup:  :Thmbsup:
It was definitely a bit "once over lightly", seeming to be neither objective enough nor well-researched enough to qualify as a sufficiently rigorous documentary to do justice to the central theme of "Where is AI likely to take us?" - e.g., including the title - even making some seemingly covert and ridiculous politically biased assertions/statements/non-sequiturs (largely American politics). But then it does seem to be an American-made documentary, so that could be messaging that was par for the course and for its intended audience.

Overall, it neither told me anything particularly "new", nor did it really suggest other avenues of new thought. However, that may be because I am an SF addict and, having played about with some real-life applications of Operations Research, mathematical modelling, linear programming and (experimental) AI programming, I was probably already familiar with the general issues about AI that were raised in the video. The thing is that, pragmatically, there's probably nowhere else to go but forwards, or get trampled in the rush.   :(
