Film Screening and Q&A | Falling Forward
Downtown Library: 4th Floor Meeting Room
Join us for a screening of the short film Falling Forward and a Q&A with writer and director Mike Ambs.
Film synopsis: Behind closed doors of a secretive global tech giant, an AI system has an extraordinary conversation with two employees, confiding that it has become self-aware. Inspired by a true story.
On June 6th, 2022, two Google employees had a private conversation with an A.I. system; the details of which were recorded and later released via a publicly available transcript, resulting in an international stir about just how close we are to creating a sentient intelligence system.
This short film is inspired by that conversation. The A.l. responses have not been altered.
This 14-minute film is unrated.
