People have so many questions about technology. Are our devices making us less human? How are companies using our data? What are the possibilities of artificial intelligence? What are the ethical implications for society, employment and the arts? Is there a moral and theological framework for using technology? This collection explores these questions through film, articles, podcasts and videos.

Upgrade

Artificial Intelligence

Why are we fascinated with creating new life?

4 out of 5 stars

What is surprising about the film from Australian writer/director Leigh Whannell (Insidious: Chapter 3) is that it is a low budget film that was filmed in Australia, but it has received relatively little press attention in the land down under. Upgrade was picked up by Blumhouse Tilt productions (Split, Get Out) after being screened at the South by Southwest Film Festival. The hope is that it gets as much attention in its land of origin as it has around the world.
